Twisted selvedge (tw-selv)

Twisting the threads as shown will make the edged neat and nice with a 3-legged edge-stitch (see photo).

Note: Make sure that the edge stitches on each side of the work has the same elasticity. On the side where the color change occurs, the work can become too tight, and, on the other side, it can be too loose.

When you change colors on every other row (on the right side) in a striped pattern such as in for example shadow-knitting, use the Domino-selvedge combined with the twisted selvedge.
Before you slip the first stitch knit-wise with yarn behind,  always twist the old and the new color the same way around each other - the new yarn on top of the old yarn.
