Here is some material for left-handed nalbinders. These videos have no voiceover but little text boxes both in English and Finnish.


Mammen Stitch (1+2), Oslo Stitch (1+1),
Brodén Stitch (1+3) (all three on the same video)

Finnish Stitch 2+2 (video)
Finnish Turning Stitch 2+2+turn (video)
Russian Stitch 2+2+2 (video)


Each of these videos includes
- how to make the starting loops, and a foundation row
- different ways how to connect the new loops to the previous row (F1, F2, M1, M1+F1, B1, B2)
- how to decrease, and how to increase

Also please notice that I am right-handed, so my needle did not obey me all the time ;)
