Right-slant 3-stitch twist
Knitting - Basic Techniques
This is a variation of a cable pattern (usually called a twist because the facing stitches are worked as knit-stitches and the under stitch is worked as a purl-stitch). The technique (combining knit and purl-stitches) can be used with any number of stitches.
|Slip the next stitch to the cable needle (1), hold the cable needle to the back.|
|Knit 2 (2 and 3).|
|Purl the stitch from the cable needle.|
|The 2 stitches on the left-hand side are crossed over the adjacent purl stitch.|
