Combination Knitting and 4 Reasons to Try it

How you form your purl stitch can solve knitting problems.

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.

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.
