    Since I knit very tight (enough to bend the needles) would you suggest slipping the 3 stitches onto a cable needle and than knitting them off…looking for something to help me.

    You could try the cable needle to see if this helps you. Also, try lifting and stretching the three stitches with the right hand needle before working them to give you a little more wiggle room. I hope this helps.

    Love your projects and videos. Would you then knit back across the WS of this TW3?

    Thanks for the kind words! On the wrong side of the TW3 you will purl these stitches.

    Twist 4 Left – slip next 3 sts onto cable needle and hold at front of work, purl next st from left hand needle, knit sts from cable needle.
    Tiwst 4 Right – slip next st onto cable needle and hold at back of work, knit next 3 sts from left hand needle, then purl st from cable needle.

    Knit a cowl with me in the October KAL to learn a fun new cable stitch and a very cool cast on and bind off.

    i am doing a building block, number 6. Could you please tell me what a twist stitch is? I got lost where it says C6B and C6F. I do understand. It is called a twist stitch, so I thought I would be knitting two stitches out of order, then knitting the stitches left on the needle. Please help! I have to finish it by Friday and have already taken it apart three times! Thank you!

    Thanks for knitting Building Blocks with me! In Block #6, you are doing the Right Twist which has its own video. The C6B and C6F are cable stitches which are worked in Block #5. Watch the Right Twist video and you will be just fine:)
