Saturday Stitch: Twisted Open Rib Stitch

Every Saturday I will share with you a new stitch.
Today's stitch is: Twisted Open Rib Stitch.

 It's great for jackets, scarves, shawls, afghans, pillows or baby blankets etc. You need a stitch number multiple of 5 + 3. Repeat the pattern between the * as many times as you like.

Instructions :

Rows 1 (WS): k1, p1 tbl, k1, *p2, k1, p1 tbl, k1; rep from *
Row 2: p1, k1 tbl, p1, *k1, yo, k1, p1, k1 tbl, p1; rep from *
Row 3: k1, p1 tbl, k1, *p3, k1, p1 tbl, k1; rep from * 
Row 4: p1, k1 tbl, p1, *k3, pass 3rd knit st on right needle over the fist 2 knit sts, p1, k1 tbl, p1; rep from *
With this stitch you will be increasing on Row 2 and will return to the original number of stitches after knitting Row 4. Be sure you end with Row 4 completed.
