Left (LT) & Right (RT) Twist Stitch Tutorial



Today's tutorial is on the Left Twist (LT) & Right Twist (RT) Stitches. These are great stitches that provides a faux cable look without the cable needles!

I've used the Right Twist stitch in my Grapevine & Jesse Slouch Beanies (Patterns available in shops... click link above photos).
