"Insert the needle into the back leg of the 2nd st, wrap the yarn around it and pull through. Then knit the 1st st as usual, and slip both sts off."

The bolded part is what's confusing me, I think. I'm not sure if I'm doing that right. I would just pull it though the second stitch, right? Not both stitches...because then it would be too tight?

I sure wish there was a video....I like to SEE the stitches. I suppose I'm more of a visual learner.

Thank you Sue

Right just pull it through the 2nd sts, like a regular knit st. I know it's hard to visualize in your head, but once you do it a few times, you'll maybe see how it's supposed to look like. So take your needles and yarn and go step by step. You don't have to do it perfectly the first time, and you may have to do it over and over, but just do it and don't worry about how it looks. Practice and it'll get better.

This is a case where having videos showing techniques are indispensible, YouTube has many but finding one that is 'correct' and not a misinterpretation is tricky. I'd love our Mods to sit down and film some so that 'correct' versions are here!

Want a video? How to Knit the Left Twist Stitch (English Style) Maybe this will help. It's the same one I posted in your other thread, David, so maybe it doesn't show you what you need. I'm hoping you just missed it or something and this will help you and Suziblues. If you need its counterpart, here's How to Knit the Right Twist Stitch.

ETA I just saw you post above, didn't see it before. I guess these aren't correct. Sorry. Maybe they'll help the other poster.
