I am knitting Dishcloths using the "Nifty Knit Dishcloths--16 designs" booklet. I'm just learning.
The Square Textures dishcloth calls for a "Right Twist".
The directions say: K2 tog making sure not to drop off, then knit the first st letting both sts drop off needle.
I have a diagram picture in the booklet, but don't understand how this is done. I basically only know how to knit, purl, cast on, knit 2 tog, and cast off.
Just put your needle into the two stitches as if to knit them together, but before you slide them off, put your needle between them and into the first stitch closest to the tip again and knit it. Then slide them off. You'll still have two stitches on your needle.

Still not clear. When I knit 2 together and bring the needle through the front stitch like I'm knitting--I'm bringing it through in the direction of purling--How do I get enough space to come from the under and up direction like knitting other stitches?
Thanks for the video. It helped somewhat. However when I did it I came up with a knotted mass of about 3 stitches. I probably will not be successful with this harder stitch. I might continue one more row after this one and see what it does.
