How to Make the Twisted Stitches

With the right-hand needle behind the left-hand needle, skip one st and knit the 2nd st in the back loop; then insert the right-hand needle into the backs of both sts (the skipped st and the 2nd st) and k2 tog-b.

How to Make the Right Twist (RT)

K2 tog, leaving sts on left-hand needle; then insert right-hand needle from the front between the two sts just knitted together, and knit the first st again; then slip both sts from needle together.
