Tree of life afghan

Hi,
I am going to start a tree of life afghan but am puzzled by the one stitch. It is called a twisted knit stitch. Does anyone know what it is ? It is not listed in the pattern under stitch explanation. Any help would be appreciated. Jack

Typically a twisted knit

Typically a twisted knit stitch is just a knit stitch where you knit into the back of the stitch.

Do a google on it to find this definition:

Twisted Knit stitch, or Knit through the back loop (Ktbl): Insert R needle the same direction into stitch as if you were going to purl, but BEHIND your left needle, not in front as for purling. Wrap yarn as usual, pull thru, and drop old stitch.
