How to knit the twisted rib stitch 1×1


Hi Knitters!

In this post we are going to show you how to knit the twisted Rib Stitch 1×1. You might already know the twisted Rib Stitch from one of our previous posts, but since you can find this specific technique in a lot of our knitting kits, we have decided to explain this stitch to you again separately. After all, we want your WAK-projects to turn out perfectly! 🙂

For this technique you need to twist each stitch by taking the stitches from behind to the front.

Twisted knitted stitches:

…and twisted purled stitches:

Now that you know how to twist the stitches, we can start with our twisted Rib Stitch 1×1:

Odd rows: purl 1 normal stitch and knit 1 twisted stitch (remember to take the thread from behind the stitch and not from the front).

Even rows: knit 1 normal stitch and purl 1 twisted stitch.

As you can see, this is a pretty easy technique although you will notice the difference in the improved elasticity of your garments. Try it and show us your results on Instagram using the hashtag #weareknitters.

For this post we have used a 100% Peruvian wool in brown  as well as  15 mm beechwood needles.

Have a look on our wool catalogue and choose your favorite color!
