Using Long green loom (rectangle)
Making a home made Styler (for quick setup of yarns on pegs)
We’ll Cast On using two strands. (Note for beginners-This is how you put the yarn on at first to get started)
Cast On Method – Twisted Knit Stitch
Main Stitch Method/Pattern – Twisted Knit Stitch

2 strands of #3 or 4 yarn in two different colors.
(Just a standard crafting acrylic yarn.  You can use wool, cotton or acrylic.  This is just what I used.)

Beginner – This video I go a bit slow.  if you are new to loom knitting this is a great video for you.

This stitch is great for scarves, lovey, blankets, placemats, pot holders (in cotton!) and a number of other projects you can build from panels.

    Love your videos. Pictures of the finished products, so the full effect of the different stitches would be most helpful. Do you have those somewhere?
