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

WHAT YARN IS USED:
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.)

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

  1. 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?

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on Vivaloom.com  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
