Knit Faster with Combination Knitting - SOLD OUT

Do you dread 1×1 ribbing? Are your ssk decreases less tidy than your k2tog? Are you a continental knitter who hates purling? Do you have trouble working make1-left and make1-right? Do you know all four needle positions? Do you know the difference between left-facing and right-facing stitches? Combination knitting exploits stitch facings and needle positions. Learn how to combination knit and when to use it to make your knitting both more pleasant to do and more beautiful as a finished product.

Prerequisite:  Students need to be able to work in the round, make decreases, and not fear a basic chart.

Skill Level Required:  Intermediate


Swatch 1: With class yarn and appropriate needles, cast on 24 stitches and work back and forth a few rows to establish stockinette fabric (RS knit, WS purl).

Swatch 2: With class yarn and appropriate needles for working in the round, cast on an even number of stitches and establish a few rounds of 1×1 ribbing.
