Right 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 a two knit stitches so that they cross over each other. In this video, we’re going to show you how to work the Right Twist.

First, knit the next two stitches together, but don’t pull the old stitches off the left-hand needle yet.

Instead, bring your right-hand needle back around and knit into the first stitch.

Then, you can drop both of the old stitches off of the left hand needle.
