Russian Stitch 3+1+2  (?) (Maaninka)


UUUOUU/OOUOOOO 

The informant describes in the Nalbinding survey (1957) that there are three loops on the thumb, and under the thumb another three, two of which she/he turns/twists, and pulls the yarn through them. 
Could be Russian Stitch 3+1+2, or something completely else.
