Knit One Through the Back Loop


Knitting through the back loop adds a little twist to a stitch. It is often used in twisted rib patterns or alongside cable stitches. You can also knit through the back loop to untwist mistakenly twisted stitches, but that looks a little different than the videos below.

Knitting through the back loop is the knit equivalent of purling through the back loop.
