This is a bit fiddly but worth the effort and if you can interpret my instructions I’m sure you’ll be pleased with the way that you get a distinct vein up the centre of the leaf.

Hopefully I’ve explained it well enough to follow – if you have any suggestions on a better description of the twisted stitch please drop me a line.

Many thanks!

* twist a = insert right hand needle into the back of the made stitch purlwise, slip onto the righthand needle and slip back onto the lefthand needle so that what was the back of stitch becomes the front. Purl into back of this stitch)

** twist b = insert right hand needle into the front of the made stitch knitwise, slip onto the righthand needle and slip back onto the lefthand needle so the back of stitch becomes the front. Knit this stitch )
