Day 278 and Mockery
I love cables! Since not everyone feels the confidence to do them just yet, a two stitch twist is a perfect transition to technique or just a nice fake when you don't have the third needle.
I can't say that this is the best representation. The texture disappeared a little more than I was expecting. But anyway, it's easy to do with a little practice. There are a number of ways to make a twist including working the second stitch followed by the first while both stay on the needle. You can also knit two together again keeping the stitches on the needle, then knitting the first stitch a second time. It makes much more sense if you actually execute it. Once again, I recommend youtube to see it in action. Search for twist stitch or twist cables.
