I am always looking for new and interesting knitting stitches and yesterday learned how to knit twisted moss stitch.
It is not a coincidence that it is yet another moss stitch, as I am planning to add many more moss stitch patterns for you.
To me, it feels like a photo cannot do this stitch justice. You need to see it!
It is truly a lovely stitch, soft and delicate.

more about the twisted moss stitch
The pattern is knit over 4 rows.
One knits the pattern stitch on the wrong side of the knitting project.
When you start knitting any piece (first row), your starting yarn will be on your left (if you are knitting European style).
As you progress with the piece, you will eventually cast off, and then the finishing yarn will be at the top right.
In this instance, you will knit your whole item, but the reverse side will be your pattern side - meaning the starting yarn will be at the bottom right and the finishing yarn, at the top left.
The image below explains it all.
K1B is the abbreviation for: knit one stitch below the stitch on the needle;
In other words, you will be knitting the stitch in the stitch from the previous row.
How do you do this?
Knit through the center of the stitch below the stitch on the needle and slip off both strands at the same time.

MULTIPLES OF 2 + 1
Cast on multiples of 2 stitches + 1 - my sample shown is worked over 31 stitches.
1st Row (WS) and all other wrong side rows: Knit;
2nd Row: K1 *K1B, K1; rep from * to end;
3rd Row: As Row 1;
4th Row: K1B *K1, K1B; rep from * to end;
Repeat the pattern (these 4 rows) until your work is the desired length.
