Left Twist – Mirror Image to Right Twist

Create a beautiful mirror image to the right twist with this method.  It is so nice you will want to use it even without a paired right twist.

  1. Love this video, thank you! Will this also work with a left purl twist. I’m knitting a great pattern with LPT next to a right purl twist and the LPTs look a little uneven.

  2. I haven’t tried it, but I think it could work. Try the stitches on a swatch and see what you think. Let me know how you make out – I will have to give it a try myself if you like it.

  3. Could you do this type of mirror with 3 stitches? I have a pattern that calls for a 3stitch left cross and 3 stitch right cross. I used this technique in your poncho knit along and loved how it turned out

  4. So I am on part one I did lower edge side one, garter border, set up rows. Do now am I supposed to do the pattern then move on to the diamond pattern?

  5. Nancy,
    The Russian Join would work, but i think that it is too obvious in this pattern. I just started a new skein away from the edge (so as not to interrupt the slipped stitch edge) and then later wove in my ends. The Dot Pattern written instructions in Row 2 read to purl ALL wrong side rows through Row 8. A multiple of 4+3 gives you the number of stitches required to work the pattern. If you want to adjust the pattern then you must have this amount of stitches. If you are not adjusting the size then you can ignore that. Happy knitting!

  6. What is the best way to join another skein of Hikoo? I’m used to the Russian bind, but I don’t think it will work with this yarn.

    ALSO, the dot pattern has directions for 7 rows, but the chart calls for 8. Not sure what you mean by multiples of 4 + 3. Could you explain, please?
