Learn to Knit - Purl into Front and Back of a Stitch Video Tutorial

Here's another video tutorial for the How to Knit list. It shows how to purl into the front and back of a stitch, which is not quite as intuitive as you would think. I always feel a bit like a contortionist with my knitting needles when I have to do this one!

This increase was used several times in the pattern for the Top Down Baby Jacket. It is not all that common to do increases on a purl row, so this is an increase you might not run into too often. I hope having a video to see how it is done will come in handy for those who run into it for the first time.

I'll be working up another granny square soon to share with you and then I'll be able to show you several different ways to join them together to achieve different results.

Happy Stitching!

  • Mary Grace, THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! Your video is superb. Slow action (people always rush through wrapping the yarn, and that is an important part of the stitch!! You took just the right amount of time so we could see EXACTLY what was going on).

    I am about to knit a Clapotis, and I was really afraid of pfb, then I found your site just surfing at random for help. Thanks so much.
