The Undiscovered How-To Videos for Left-Handers!

About: I have a degree in Electronics Engineering and various certifications in all kinds of internet programming languages. Professionally, I have over 20 years of experience in various roles including an electron...

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!!

* 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

    Why not just watch it in a mirror?
