This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to untwist your stitches. Sometimes you stitches can become twisted, often after placing your work back on the needles from being dropped or ripping back. This can make working the stitches a little difficult and may even disrupt your pattern. Luckily this is easily fixed.

Skill: Easy

You can recognize a twisted stitch by where the front leg of the stitch is located.

If it is in front then you can knit normally.

If it is in back then your stitch is twisted.

To fix this all you need to do is knit through the back loop of the twisted stitches.
