Twin Stitch Knit and Purl - TSK and TSP

Knitting Tutorial: The twin stitch knit (tsk) and twin stitch purl (tsp) are special turning stitches used when knitting shadow wrapped short rows.
When it comes to sock knitting, it's no secret that I'm a big fan of shadow wrapped short row heels and toes. I love them because creating the special turning stitch, known as the twin stitch, is fairly simple to understand.

Before You Begin

Ultimately, a twin stitch is a stitch where two loops, or twin loops, emerge from the same lower stitch. Likewise, a triplet stitch is a stitch where three loops are coming out of the same lower stitch.
