Twisted stitch cables - traveling cables comprised of intertwined one-stitch columns, where each stitch is knit through the back loop - create a tight fabric with really beautiful dimension and texture. Greenrow begins with a twisted rib, and then integrated increases are used to set-up the cable charts. Once the main body is complete, integrated decreases are worked to shape the crown. When working the decreases at the crown, change to double pointed needles when the work is too small to comfortably fit on the circular needles. Unless otherwise noted, slip all stitches purlwise.
