The Left Twist Knit Stitch with Video Tutorial!

Posted on Posted in Free Patterns

 

Today’s post is short but sweet! I wanted to share with you this amazing new knitting stitch I learned.

It is on the more difficult side of stitch patterns, however, with some practice the result is totally worth it! I have an infinity scarf in mind using this stitch and I’m dreaming of a lovely silk yarn to do it in.

Once I have the pattern written I will be sharing it here with you! So be sure you’re

WHAT I USED:

  • size 9 needles
  • 1 skein yarn
  • scissors

I knew I was wanting to play around with this stitch more than anything when I grabbed this skein of yarn. It’s described as a “scratchy” yarn and not really one I would use to gift with. However, the colors are gorgeous!!! I’m looking for something equally as beautiful colorwise to make an infinity scarf with.

 

Some other project ideas which I believe would be gorgeous using this stitch would be…

  • a chunky throw pillow
  • a sweater
  • infinity scarf
  • blanket or throw made with a large chunky yarn

Really the possibilities are endless! I do recommend getting a practice skein of yarn to try this stitch out on first. Within the first hour of starting this pattern, I had frogged more times than I wanted too!

Give this one some time to master. It will be totally worth it in the end!

The textures are gorgeous and I love the movement created by each of the twisted ribs. It is really stunning and on the right project could be an even more beautiful!

 

 

THE STITCH PATTERN:

Cast on a Multiple of 7 + 2

***pattern note: LT refers to left twist – skip next stitch on left needle, knit into the back loop of the second stitch, leaving stitch on the needle.  Then slip the first stitch purlwise, and drop the second stitch from left needle.

R1  and all WS Rows:  k2 *p5, k2
R2 : p2 *LT, k3, p2
R4 : p2 *k1, LT, k2, p2
R6 : p2 *k2, LT, k1, p2
R8 : p2 *k3, LT, p2

Repeat these 8 rows for the pattern.

That’s it!
