Adapting patterns for a combined knitter

Hi there everyone!
I’m new here and just getting back to knitting after many years. It turns out that when I learned from my Middle eastern mother-in-law, I learned combined knitting.
Now I’ve found that it doesn’t work well with Western patterns, and I’m getting really frustrated!
Is there any simple way to figure out the adjustments, or will I have to forget about any patterns with open work?
Any suggestions are appreciated!
Thanks all!
