Combined knitting?
Hi fellow knitters!

I am fairly new at knitting and have gotten so much help from reading posts here & especially the videos!

I have been knitting for several weeks now, and now that I see the videos I see that I didn't follow the book properly and have been placing my needle as described in combined knitting.

The stitches are even and fabulous (I am amazed!) and it seems easier than the "regular" kind- my questions are...

How much pattern adjustment/deviation will I have to do if I continue to knit this way? (edited to add I understand the video, that I will have to do increasing and decreasing a little differently as well as wrap the yarn backwards when knitting in the round. Anything else?) Should I retrain myself the "right" way and keep practicing until I get it down?

All advice appreciated!
