In this video, Mary Beth Temple demonstrates how to crochet the Tunisian Twisted Knit stitch. This stitch pattern is similar to the Tunisian Knit stitch and it features a subtle twisted look. Mary Beth shows us a swatch that has both types of stitch-work so we can see the difference between stitch patterns.

On the forward pass: Mary Beth skip the first vertical bar (this is customary for plain stitches), she then inserts her hook from left-to-right through the next vertical bar, twisting it as she inserts the hook through the fabric before the back of the stitch that she is twisting. She then makes a YO and leaves the loop on the hook as we always do when working the forward pass. When Mary Beth gets to the last stitch, she shows us how she likes to go under two loops at the edge like she would for a regular knit stitch. She prefers this method as it creates a neater edge along the side of her work.

This stitch pattern has a standard return pass: This is worked the same as the return pass for the Tunisian Simple Stitch. Yo, and pull through one loop on the hook, *yo and pull through two loops, repeat from * across until only one loop remains on the hook.

Repeat Forward pass and return pass for pattern.

Mary Beth points out that this stitch pattern is a bit more narrow compared to the Tunisian Knit Stitch. She recommends using a gauge swatch to help make modifications if you plan to go back and forth between stitch patterns.
