Combination Knitting and 4 Reasons to Try it

Knitting Tutorial: Combination knitting for both English and Continental style knitters.
Whether you are an English or Continental style knitter, combination knitting is a game changer. It doesn't matter how you control your yarn as you knit, instead, this method has to do with how you form your purl stitches.

Before You Begin

So why try combination knitting?
  1. For Continental knitters, it's physically easier to form purl stitches with less hand motion.
  2. It can effect your gauge and allow you to get more stitches and rows per inch.
  3. It can help you firm up ribbing without having to change your needle size.
  4. It can eliminate wide purl stitches that happen after a knit stitch.

Materials

Thanks to Skacel for providing the HiKoo Sueño Worsted yarn used in this tutorial. It is available locally at many yarn shops and online at Maker's Mercantile.
