I know this has been discussed, but that was years ago. I have hated ribbing with my continental style it takes forever. So I went on YouTube and found the Norwegian Purl. It is a style where you don't have to bring the working yarn to the front of the work to purl.

It is tricky, but totally worth the effort. Ribbing goes so much faster and I don't end up making my cuffs and brims too short to keep me warm.

Anyone else use this method? Anyone else interested in trying it? Let me know what you think...

Good for you, many contintal knitters like it better. You might want to note that 'American style' is usually another name for english or throwing, which isn't anything like continental except in the stitches that are produced.

So glad I ran across this post while perusing Craftster. I've been knitting for ages and never heard of/tried it. I've avoided many a pattern with seed stitch, but never again! Thanks for the heads up!
