Using straight or circular needles (or DPN) learn how to Knit 1 Through Back Loop (k1tbl or k1 tb needles). This will make a “y” looking stitch instead of a flatter “v”.
The knitting is twisted and stretchier; it is also called the Twisted knit Stitch, also a stockinette stitch that will roll naturally.
Use Knit 1 Through Back Loop when called out in a pattern or use to help a non-stretchy yarn get a bit of stretch by building this into your knitting.
