What does the K2tog through the back loop do differently than a simple K2tog? I noticed it is only used at the beginning of the row. Johnny Vasquez It changes the direction the stitches lean. A k2tog leans right. A k2tog tbl leans left. Hgayle Like this edging. Gonna have to remember it for use in the future. firstname.lastname@example.org Hi Johnny, I love the way you knit. I taught myself to knit but after I watched your videos i wanted to copy the way you use your pointer finger to get the yarn around the needle. my knitting is quicker & more comfy than how I was throwing the yarn b4. I noticed on Row4 the direction you wrap your yarn when doing a yarn over. I believe I’m yarning over the needle the opposite direction (clockwise). Does it matter ? Thank you Carolyne Johnny Vasquez One direction will situate the yarn as a twisted stitch. It’s easy to compensate for. If what you’re doing works for you I wouldn’t worry about it. email@example.com I have a deep love for cables, it’s the reason I wanted to learn to knit. Now I am interested in cables & lace & I know yarn overs are one of the fence posts in lace lol. So my going clockwise with the yarn is actually twisting the stitch? So how would I compensate this? I thought I read knitting the stitch thru the back loop will correct it. Sheesh, I never realized I was twisting it but that’s probably because I don’t do many yo’s. thanks Johnny Vasquez It depends on what you’re doing if the yarn over will twist the stitch. I think you’re probably fine. If you are going from a knit stitch to another knit stitch, then you would bring the yarn to the front of your work and over the top of the needle. If you are twisting your stitch, then knitting through the back loop will twist the stitch back.
