In my last post I shared some information on Russian knitting. I wanted to point out it may be even more important than I touched on to research combination knitting for anyone else out there wanting to knit Russian style.
I found a little pattern written for ‘normal’ knitting (English / Continental) and have been practicing with it because it has stitches I often used, as well as one stitch I’d never done before. Since you need to rethink what the designer is going for this turned out to be more frustrating than I expected! I consider myself an advanced beginner in “normal” knitting, I can’t say the little needle in the dial hits Advanced yet for me in Russian knitting, but I’m working on it.
To make a long story short I hollered for help and was answered by some nice combined knitters with a very helpful link I can share.
Above is one of them. A table from grumperina.com which is a handy sheet that is a super when you’re working on a pattern that assumes you are working stitches the way an English or Continental pattern is written. Take a peek, print it out, and praise her for taking the time to make the table! :)
Today I was messing around with the pattern and modified it just a little bit and just needed to let you all know to be a little patient for my next post. I promise… well I can’t PROMISE… individual tastes and all…. but be prepared for cuteness anyway. I can barely contain myself.
Hold onto your!
Keyboards? Phone cases? Tablet.. bodies?
I just can’t wait to share! I haven’t taken pictures of anything I’ve made in a long while!
Be well until next time! (soon!)
