Turning Stitch, version II,  2+tl+3 (Karbenning Stitch)


2+tl+3
tl = 1 loop is 'turned', needle tip to left

Hansen's Notation (modified)
UUU/O\U OOO/UUUUOOO

Otherwise a similar stitch as shown on video 2+tl+2 (link), but instead of two loops behind the thumb, three loops are picked up, ie total four loops onto the needle, 1 'turned' plus 3 others behind the thumb.

You can read more about the Finnish Turning Stitches on page Stitch Grouping by Toini-Inkeri Kaukonen (link).
