Twisting yarns together

Once you've joined in all the colours that you need across the row, on the return row the yarns should be twisted to join the blocks of colour together When you change colour always pick up the new colour from under the old yarn.This is particularly important when the colours are changed at the same place in two or more rows. A line of loops will be formed on the wrong side of the work; these should not show through to the right side. Pull the yarns up firmly for the first stitch after twisting.
