The stitch pattern repeats over eight rows and is basically an alternating twisted rib. You twist all knit stitches on the front and all of the purl stitches on the back in a 1 x 1 rib pattern for 4 rows and then alternate so that the stitches that were knit stitches in the first four rows are now purl and the purl stitches are now knit. Easy once you get used to knitting into the back of the stitches to get the twisted effect.
