How to knit a Left Twist (Mock Cable)
Aviat by Corrina Ferguson uses what’s called Right and Left Twists to create a mock cabled texture along the fabric. Essentially, it’s a quirky little way to work two knit stitches so that they cross over each other. In this video, we’re going to show you how to work the Left Twist.
The Left Twist is a little tricky, utilizing the “knit through the back loop” technique, but with a little practice, you’ll have it down pat.
Bring your right-hand needle around to the back of your work.
And knit through the back loop of the second stitch. Pull that stitch through and keep it to the back of your work.
From there, insert your right-hand needle into the back of both stitches and knit them together.
Now, you can drop both of the old stitches from the left-hand needle.
