Q: I can't figure out the hem twist. Could you could walk me through it in a little more detail?
A: First, be sure you have followed the directions to the letter, most importantly that you have worked FLAT (not in rounds). At the point of the first twist, hold the yarn in your right hand next to the needle, then move the right needle tip down and away from you, then under the work and back toward you until it is back in working position. This action should produce a twist in the fabric between the needle tips. Continue by working the next stitch normally.
