Introduction: The Undiscovered How-To Videos for Left-Handers!

I found a slick way to convert any right-handed knitting video into a left-hander's!! It will work for any how-to video showing a right-handed person performing a task.

When I was learning how to knit, I found it nearly impossible to find any 'good' videos on how to knit left-handed. Most sources claim that knitting right-handed should be easy even if you are left-handed. Well, I say, good for those people, as someone who is left-handed, I cannot get knitting right-handed down.

Whether you are a left-handed person who is learning to knit or you want to learn a different stitch? You can watch any knitting how-to video made for right-handers!!

More from me @ http://disagreedisobey.wordpress.com/

Step 1: Download and Install Chrome

Step 2: Watch the Video From a Different Perspective!

Right-click the Flip this! icon.

Click the Flip Horizontally!

Step 3: Learning to Knit?

Whether you are a left-handed person who is learning to knit or you want to learn a different stitch? You can watch any knitting how-to video made for right-handers!

Step 4: Any Part of the Video - Flip Back and Forth!

The tool is categorized as a novelty but this is a really amazing tool for someone who is left-handed!!

* no, I didn't make the extension nor do I receive any credit for promoting it. I found it when searching for an extension that would flip a video. So this is a new use for an existing tool that the creators didn't realize!

I've also tried sitting across the table from someone who is right-handed and try to watch them... resulting in only confusion. I'm hoping that this will help someone else who is left-handed and has found it challenging to learn to knit from right-handers ;-)

Nice tip! I taught myself how to knit from a book with a left handed section, but I haven't been able to figure out crochet yet

I learned a lot at http://newstitchaday.com/ using the flip this! extension.

The authors of this site offer crochet videos as well as knitting!!

Why not just watch it in a mirror?
