Please click reply when posting not "report." Report is only for spam. Thanks.

Also posting your questions in the proper forum will get you answers quicker as well as more replies. This is only an introduction thread.

I found this by doing a forum search-
Tw2R = knit into front of 2nd st on left hand needle, then knit into front of 1st st, slipping both sts off needle together.

Hi, yes this should be posted in the How To forum instead of in the Introductions thread. And the 'Report this post' button is only for when you see spam.

Tw2r is like a mini cable, knit in the 2nd st on the needle from the front, leave it there, then knit into the 1st stitch.

I think it means "twist 2 right". That is a technique of sort of 'cabling' two stitches, one over the other, leaning to the right.

As you approach the 2 stitches, pull the first one (A) off the left needle, hold it to the front, knit the next (the B stitch), then knit the first (the A stitch). It 'twists' them.

new to knitting :-)
I have been crocheting for 30 years and recently (last week) took up knitting as well. I find it very relaxing! :-)
My current project is a prayer shawl with LionBrand Homespun in the garter stitch.

Knit & Pearl
Hi, I am a VERY new knitter. This is my first time trying it. I am watching the video and then try. So far, not so bad on the knitting part. The pearl part, however, has me stumped. Is there a reason why I cannot keep knitting? Do I have to pearl?

I have started over six times now because I keep messing up when I get to the pearl part.

Please help!

You can knit everything, but you will only be able to do garter stitch, unless you work in the round all the time. Just practice the knitting for a week or so, then you'll get more comfortable with the needles and it'll be easier. Then try purling. The yarn moves the same direction around the needle as the knit stitch, the only difference is you poke the R needle into the stitch from the back instead of the front. Do you knit with your yarn in the right or left hand?

Hi everyone. I am a new knitter. I crocheted some when I was little, and I sew alot. I have always wanted to knit, and thought it to be very complicated. I have been practicing for about a month when I came across this site. No I am in heaven. I have so many questions, and I can't wait to show off my first knitted project.

If you post your question in the "How To" section, you'll get lots of help with this.

The purl stitch will come in time. It really makes your projects look nice to be able to use both knit and purl stitches. Otherwise, everything you knit will look the same. Purling opens up all kinds of beautiful options in your craft.
