Tunisian Twisted Purl Stitch (Ttps)

⇐ Back to Basic Stitches
The look of the Twisted Purl resembles the classic Purl stitch but pulls the rows closer together, making the stitches look shorter. It creates a fabric that falls in-between the bulkiness and 'shortness' of the Purl and the Backwards Purl.


Instructions
To begin: Chain any number to length desired.

Foundation: Row one forward: Insert hook into first chain space from hook. Yarn over and pull up a loop. * Insert hook into next, yarn over and pull up a loop.
