54.  Twisted Knitting.

 

Cast on 12 stitches, knit and seam alternate rows for 8 rows; the 3 first and last stitches of each row are always knit.

Ninth row:—Knit 3 stitches, take a third pin and knit 3 more, knit the remainder of the stitches with the first pin.

Tenth row:—Knit 3 stitches, seam the 3 stitches on the third pin, seam the other 3, knit the 3 edge stitches. This completes 1 twist, and is repeated after every 8 rows.
