Inside: Learn how to loom knit the Ripple Twist stitch with the written instructions, chart and tutorial videos for both right and left handers. Includes free blanket square pattern in 3 sizes.
This stitch pattern would look beautiful as a scarf, blanket or wrap. It won’t curl up at the edges so you don’t need to plan for a border. But be warned, it’s not reversible; the back looks different than the front.

Left Twist: Skip one stitch and Ewrap knit second stitch, place stitch to hold on peg before slipped. Knit the skipped stitch then place on empty peg. Move held stitch to empty peg. Pull snug any loose stitches.
