Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Right Purl Trist
  • Left Twist
  • Cast on
  • Bind off

Pattern Description:

This pattern is a bit challenging as you would need to know (or learn) what a right purl twist and a left twist is. Not Hard! I promise.

So you can see what I'm talking about, here is what one looks like...

RPT (right purl twist): wyif skip first st, P second st, then P skipped st. Slip both sts from needle.

LT (left twist): with RH needle behind LH needle, skip next st on LH needle, K second st tbl (through back loop), then K skipped st in front loop. Sl both sts from LH needle.

I love YouTube. It's where I go to to learn a new stitch, or revisit one I've not done in a long time, like a twist. But, these directions are included in the pattern.

It's FUN. It's user friendly. And the directions are easy to read.

Try it. If nothing else, than for a new stitch.
