Video: Twisted Purl Stitches/Wrapping the Yarn the Wrong Way



While working at my LYS, I never made any friends by doing this, but I couldn't help pointing out to people that (in addition to whatever mistake they had come to ask me about) they were accidentally twisting their stitches.

Most people don't even realize they are doing this!

Twisted stitches usually happen when you wrap the yarn the wrong way around your needle when you are purling. I show you how to do it the right way, both American and Continental style.
