Here is a good stitch to know, especially if your knitting tends to come out looser than you would like it. It works well for a nice cozy sweater when used with a thick wool. The twisted stockinette is just like basic stockinette stitch, except you put the needle in the BACK of the stitch when you knit. This twists the stitches and makes them tighter.
Here are the instructions for knitting the twisted stockinette stitch.
- Row 1: Knit all stitches through the back (put your needle in the back).
- Row 2: Purl all stitches normally.
