Cardigan with a Twist

I saw this sweater and design in a hand knitting magazine called Knitters Magazine. I liked the design and decided to try it on the knitting machine.  This could easily be done using the G-carriage. I just did this sample using the ribber. I had 15 stitches in my sample. Needles 1-5 starting on the left were transferred  from the main bed to the ribber and back again each row. Then I had 5 stitches on the ribber , 5 stitches on main bed. I knitted 12 rows between the twists . If you try this, end with the carriage on the right if your stitches to twist are on the left. If you don’t do this, when you twist the stitches, you will have the yarn in the wrong place to start knitting again. It happened to me so I had to hand knit the five stitches to get it back to the left edge to start knitting again.
