Only three more days until the release of this seasons new Spring/Summer collection! In preparation, I thought I’d demonstrate a commonly used abbreviation that you will find in many Berroco patterns: knit through the back loop (k tbl) and purl through the back loop (p tbl). By working a stitch through the back loop you are deliberately twisting your stitch.
Follow along as I demonstrate k tbl…
…and p tbl.
This stitch technique can create a beautiful twisted ribbing that pops or close a yarn over and to make an almost invisible new stitch.
