Help with combined knitting
I was just practicing the combined knitting method. I find it a lot easier when doing ribbing. What I want to know is this...if I do the ribbine using the combined knitting method, can I switch to the regular method when I come to the stockinette stitch part or do I have to continue with this through the whole body of the sweater?
Has anyone used this method? What are the pros and cons? I don't want to do all those rows of ribbing only to have to continue this method the whole way. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You may get a little different gauge, but ribbing has a different gauge than stockinette anyway. It probably would work out just fine.

kuwona,

I've had a harder time with combined knitting for things like ribbing. Where I find it MOST useful is when I'm knitting flat and I want to make sure my purl stitches aren't too loose and give me striping. When I combined knit, I get a slightly tighter gauge overall. When I knit in the round I knit in the traditional way, and my gauge is looser than my combined knitting.

Or maybe keep the compassion thread open and ban photolady... Just a thought. She seems to be causing more problems to the point other's are disturbed by what she writes, both publicly and privately.
