It's a cable twist, a giant cable twist. Put 31 sts sts on a dpn or other needle or stitch holder. Let them flop toward you then knit 31 sts off the Left needle and go back to the 31 sts on the holder and knit them. Here's a video for a cable cross with less stitches, but it's done the same way.

A sixty-two stitch cable?? How on earth would you ever get the first one done? The most I've ever tried was 8 (4 + 4, not 8 + 8) and even that felt like a reach.

Whatever next? 40-stitch I-cord?
