Wisdom Wednesdays

Now that you know how to cast-on, it’s time to learn how to knit the purl stitch.

Also known as reverse jersey, this is the stitch that looks like the back side of the plain knit stitch (tutorial coming soon).

1. Cast on number of desired stitches

2. Move the working yarn to the front of the work.Β  For purling, the yarn is always held in the front.

3. Slip the right needle into the first stitch on the left needle, moving from right to left.

4. Take the working yarn and loop it over the right needle in a counter-clockwise motion.

5.Β  Slip that newly made loop through the first stitch and slip off the left needle.

6. Repeat.
