I am making a toddler hat which has a “twist” in it, but I cannot understand the explanation of the abbreviation “TwF= knit into front of second stitch on left hand needle(keeping needle in front of first stitch) , then into front of first stitch , slip both sts off needle together.” I think it’s like a mini -cable without using a cable needle, but can’t seem to figure it out. Can anyone help me…? Thanks.
You will knit the first two stitches on the needle just as you would knit any stitch BUT you are knitting them out of order. Knit the second stitch first, and before slipping anything off the left needle, knit the first stitch and then slip both original stitches off the left needle.
Does that help?
Knitqueen, thank you so much for your response. I have now almost completed my hat, so nice of you to reply to my question. Great idea, a website like this. Thaks again. Claire.
