Stitch Abbreviation: LT
Technique Difficulty: 3 of 5
Complimentary Stitches: Right Twist Stitch
Substitution Stitches: 1/1 LC – 1 over 1 left cross | C2F – Cable 2 Forward
The left twist stitch is a mock cable. By knitting stitches out of order, a twist can be created in the fabric. It’s more efficient than a 1/1 Cable Left or Cable 2 Forward and can be used in place of those stitches. Just like other cable stitches, the left twist stitch can be stacked close together for a spiral effect, or spaced further apart for a traditional cable look. This is a great technique to use in 2×2 ribbing to add a little flair to your project.
Our mission is to empower knitters to be fearless with their knitting through great education, simple projects, and an amazing community.
