Knit Through the Back Loop (ktbl)

Knitting through the back loop of a stitch on the left hand needle will twist, or reorient, the stitch as it moves onto the right hand needle. Knitting through the back loop can twist a stitch to make it firmer or untwist a stitch that has been incorrectly seated on the needle. It is also used to create some interesting stitch patterns.
