Hi everyone, I am working a pattern that calls for Right Twist:K second st on left needle and leave on needle k first st sl both sts of needle.. Left Twist: K second st on left needle through back loop and leave on needle K first st as usual sl both sts off needle Here's the question. What do I do with the first st while working the second? Do I slip to a cable needle then bring up and work??? If so, do I hold the stitch in front or back Thanks
That's whats puzzling me I have to work the "second st" first, then the first st So what do I do with the first st when I am wrestling with the second st Keep it on the left needle or take off and then work
Knitty has a great article explaining these twisted stitches and different ways to do them. Basically it's a two-stitch cable (one crossing over the second). You can do them with a cable needle if you continue to find the other methods tricky.
