Would you like to add the look of tiny cables to your next knitting project without actually cabling? Mock cables, or twists, may be the solution. Twisting two stitches to the right or left, abbreviated t2r and t2l, can easily be done without the use of a cable needle.
Twist 2 Right (T2R) - k2tog leaving sts on the needle, insert the right needle between the sts just worked and k first st again, slip both sts off the left needle together
Twist 2 Left (T2L) - with right needle behind work, k in the back loop of the 2nd st on the left needle, k in the front of the first st, slip both sts off left needle together
