An added benefit to learning the magic twist stitch is that it speeds up your knitting. It does this because each stitch you make while using this stitch pattern involves doing three e-wrap stitches on every peg.
No Curl Stitch
Another bonus to using this stitch as that you end up with a nice textured look that looks good on either side you want as your main side. In addition to the previously mentioned reasons to learn this loom knit stitch is that the cast on used (the Owl Eye stitch) eliminates the the curl you get with some stitches and you don’t have to do any purling in the cast on.
