OK So I am trying to make these fishnet-type gloves from the "Vampire Knits" book and I have to do a "Dtk"-double twisted knit and a "Dtp"-double twisted purl and even though there are directions in the book I really can not figure them out (no pictures and I really need a picture to figure this one out).  So I was wondering if anyone is familiar w/ these stitches or could point me in the direction of a tutorial or diagram....anything (I am sooooo a visual learner)  Thanks!

I can't find any good videos either.  If you send me the instructions from the book I can try to work it out and come up with something for you.

Here are the instructions from the "Vampire Knits" book (any help is greatly appreciated):
"Insert needle into stitch knitwise bring yarn up from under the right-hand needle between the two needles, wrap the yarn around the left-hand needle, over the top of both needles, and around the right-hand needle.
Then knit the stitch by bringing the yarn wrapped around the right-hand needles beneath and clear of the crossed strands on the left-hand needle. These strands are dropped off the left-hand needle as the stitch is completed."
Also states:
"The double twisted knit stitch involves making a "figure 8" over the needles
before drawing the yarn through the stitch. With a bit of practice, it will become as natural as making a regular knit stitch"
Any help appreciated!
(sent you a PM too- Thanks again!!!!!!)

I've almost got it, but I'm triple twisting the knit stitch.  I found the instructions for dtp from the book online and that one was easy enough.  Once I figure out where the extra twist is coming from, I'm make up a video and link you to it.

ETA: Alright...I'm pretty sure I've got it.  Here's a link to the video.  I hope it helps!
