These gentlemen are fantastic knitters, creating amazing chullos. They knit with the yarn tensioned around their necks. Their circular intarsia is usually all purled from the inside, first heading left, like we do, and when they reach the end of the round,
they wrap the working yarns around a cord, and work the next round in reverse….
Note the pincer technique.
But look here! This fellow is knitting back, just like we do! He’s a maverick, the only one who does this.
So you see, different styles exist even within the same village.
