How to Knit the Left Twist Stitch

This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the left twist stitch. This mock cable stitch allows you to create twists in your knitting over two stitches without a cable needle. The left twist stitch compliments the right twist stitch.

Also known as: mock cable.

Abbreviation: LT

Skill: Beginner

Pattern:

Step 1: Insert your needle into the second stitch on your main needle through the back loop and knit the stitch, leaving it on the needle.

Step 2: Bring your working needle around the front of your work and insert your needle into the first stitch knitwise and knit the stitch as normal.

Step 3: Slip both stitches off the main needle together.

Here is an example of the left twist stitch used in the twisted cable rib stitch:

      I would slip both stitch off the working needle and pull the yarn out, then place the loose loops on the main needle.
