To make the Twisted Single Crochet, you insert the hook in the next stitch, pull up a loop (keep both loops on hook loose), turn the hook counter clockwise (loops remain on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops.
It can be a little tricky pulling through those loops after the twist, so it's definitely important to keep both those loops a little bigger than usual before the twist. If it's looking a little odd at first, make a few more twisted sc, and then give your fabric a quick gentle tug - that seems to pull the stitches right into place!
The Twisted Single Crochet has the same look as the Reverse Single Crochet/Crab Stitch, but you can keep working in the usual direction - and some say they find it a lot easier! What do you think? Which do you prefer?
Thanks for watching!
