Samples of the Finnish Turning Stitches,
and Turning Stitches variant 2

Nalbinding swatches 
The first number means the number of loops that stay around thumb, the second number means how many loops are picked up onto the needle behind the thumb, and the third number, how many loops are picked up onto the needle from back to front, needle tip towards 3 o'clock (or 9 o'clock in some cases).

tr = loop-to-be-turned, needle tip to right (towards 3 o'clock)
tl = loop-to-be-turned, needle tip to left (towards 9 o'clock)
