Tk or Tp

I am working on a pattern with instructions to Tp (purl into front of 2nd st, p into front of 1st st, slip sts off needle together and/or Tk (k into back of 2nd st, k into front of 1st st, slip sts off needle together). Are there other names for these stitches? I have found a video for Tk but would love to find a video for Tp.
Thanks!!!

These are twist stitches. I found this video but one of the stitches is a knit. Most of the hits I got and checked were for p2tog, p the first stitch. The stitches can also be reordered on the needle.

Thanks!

Did you get it to work? That’'s what matters. If still needed someone will be able to help I’m sure.

Thanks for checking in. I cannot find anything that shows this “purl into front of 2nd st, p into front of 1st st and slip both off together”. Most everything is purl in the back. The pattern I am using doesn’t use stitches I am familiar with and I have been knitting for a long time. I am just going to follow this literally. Same problem with Cr6B and Cr6F. I am knitting a swatch to practice on. If you or anyone else has any suggestions I would appreciate it.
Thanks, again!

Do let us know how it works out for you, please. Sometimes the only way to figure it out is to do it. I’m like that.

I will definitely let you know how it goes! I really appreciate this forum. So helpful and quick to respond. Let’s hope I finish this pattern before the baby has time to outgrow it.
Best,

Charlene

What pattern is it? It does sound like a challenge with those different stitches.

This is the pattern. Some of the stitches are unfamiliar to me and I don’t feel that the pattern is very clearly written. I’d be interested to know if anyone here has made this and found it challenging as well. Plodding along. :blush:
Thanks!

Found the Ravelry page. Have you checked the project pages to see if anyone mentions the problems you’re having. I’ve only read about the problems with Debbie Bliss patterns but they do seem to be notorious for being difficult.

I worked the stitches as directed and had no problem. If you just do exactly as instructed I think they should be pretty easy after you do a few.

Thank you! I just read through the comments on Ravelry and now know I am not crazy with the charts!!! The numbers are reversed. Whew. What a difference. Will incorporate the changes of other mistakes in the pattern as well. I still think this pattern is going to be a struggle so will most likely keep reaching out for help to Knitting Help. Happy you are all there.
Happy knitting!

Charlene

Dear Grumpy Gramma,
Forgot to say that yes, I am doing the instructions as written as you suggest. And thanks again for finding the pattern on Ravelry…comments about mistakes there really helped!
Best,
Charlene

I love finding out that it’s not just me when something is screwed up. Knitting Help is about helping knitters. I first got help here years ago and learned to do something with knits and purls. Do update us on your progress when you’re ready, please.

These are some of the stitches in the sweater I am working on, Cables and Teddy Bear by Debbie Bliss. I just keep a cheat sheet close by for the cables. The TP and TK are easy to recognize after you do a couple it will feel natural to you. Best of luck!

Thank you, bjcann. Agreed, I can see the Tp and Tk stitches now that I have done a few rows. I just find the pattern is really awkward to follow. It did help to look on Ravelry at GrumpyGramma’s suggestions. Are you knitting this sweater as well? Good luck to you as well! Thank you!

Me too! Loving this forum. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks again, Charlene

It’s adorable. It’s sure nothing I’ve ever seen before and had no idea where the pattern originated. The Tk and Tp are the only abbreviations that look really unfamiliar when I read through the page you sent to me. I finally found it on Ravelry at https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cable-and-teddybear-jacket and
a lot of people have made it. Perhaps if you go to the projects section there you can find someone else who posted about having had a similar problem. You could also post a comment of your own asking for help from people who have already made the sweater
and/or try messaging some of those people individually, too. You may outsmart this thing yet! And think of how good you’ll feel when it’s actually completed.

I am definitely in for the long haul. Ha! I’ve already taken out about 8 rows to correct a mistake I made. It is so cute I am determined to make it.
Thanks,
Charlene

Sounds like you’ll make it! Hang in there.
