Erhmm ... talk about zen questions! <grin>
You don't twist anything, GG! - by far the hardest part is mastering the CO. You gotta watch the pattern-maker's video; and even that ain't poifick - which is why I started over so many times.
In making a moebius, there are certain basic points the knitter should have in mind (I didn't): things like the HOW of the knitting (see attachment) - meaning, what your knitting method
will look like.
And don't take that photo as a real indication, btw! - that example is actually twisted twice rather than once: I only added it to show you more or less what knitting a moebius will look like.
