Quilt stitch

When working a quilt stitch you will have long strands running across the RS of your work (your pattern will explain how these are formed).

To workt the quilt stitch:

Start by inserting the RH needle under the long strand:

Then insert the RH needle into the first stitch on the LH needle:

Now knit as if this were just a regular knit stitch, but pulling the yarn loop up through both stitches:

Slip both loops off the LH needle so that you have a new knit stitch on the RH needle and the strand is now behind your work and forming a V-shape.
