Combined Knitting for a Dummy
OK, I'm trying to get a handle on what combined knitting is and/or isn't but don't want to hijack the thread I was reading and got side tracked to combined knitting from. From what I've read and pictures I've looked at, it seems that the only thing different from what I'm already doing is the direction the yarn wraps around the needle when making the stitches resulting in twisted stitches on the right needle. Am I even warm? Is this the same as the tip for ribbing I read elsewhere (I'm thinking it was about a 3x2 rib but I'm not sure) to get the stitches to look right? I want to try it but want to know if I've got the right idea first. Thanks for any help and info.
