Correct a Twisted Stitch

Sometimes stitches become twisted, resulting in an uneven finish to the knit fabric. To recognize the problem, you need to know how stitches should sit on the needle. When you look at the stitches on your needle, the right side of each loop should rest on the front of the needle, and the left side of each loop should rest against the back of the needle. If you see a stitch where the left side of the loop is in the front, then you have a twisted stitch.

1 Work across until you get to the twisted stitch.

2 Use the right needle to pick up the twisted stitch from the left needle, as shown, turn it around, and place it back on the left needle so that the right side of the loop is in front.
