I think I get what you're trying to do but my brain is shut off for the night, lol. I know you want to design it yourself but take a look at this pattern to maybe help yourself work through it: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/braid-cable-reversible-hiking-scarf

I have a suggestion for you to try. Knit a 'plain' WS row with no twist stitches and only do the twists on the RS rows. Just work the sts as they appear on the WS - knit the knits and purl the purls. Try that and see if it works better, most cable or twist patterns don't do them on every row.

mandy: its not so much I wanted to design it myself I just could find a braid cable that was done as twists with a purl between rather than a true braid cable.
soozeq, I.ll try that.

In another forum someone posted a hat they'd made using cable and twist patterns from a book, Twisted-Stitch Knitting. Here's the link to the thread - http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=110386 - I thought of you when I saw it, looks a little like something you're trying for. Here's her ravelry page for it with more photos - http://www.ravelry.com/projects/JoodieKadoodie/twisted-stitch-sampler-hat

Hopefully you can find the book, maybe in a library to look over first.

Do you mean a purl stitch in the center of all the cables? Because the pattern I posted is a k1,p1, reversible braid cable. I'm working on a detailed cabled sweater at the moment, or else I'd read through your pattern more.
