View Full Version : Just love that purl stitch.

HI all. I am new here and I am a fairly new knitter. Up until now, I have avoided increasing in my beloved purl stitch. I have read instructions on how to increase it and I hope someone tells me that has got to be an easier way to do it? Please Please? Everytime I try to increase it, I seem to end up putting money into the swear jar. Any help would be welcome. Thanks. :knitting:

What, purl front and back? It's very awkward at first, but after a dozen or so times it gets easier. Unless the pattern specifies that, there's M1 which can be done on the purl side too, or a couple others.

Thanks for the answer. My jar was starting to run over. I have avoided patterns that called for a purl increase until now. I guess I should be more patient. I just thought there had to be an easier way to do it. Now I can try your suggestions. Ok, back to practice. If I don't get it, can you guys kick in together and buy me another swear jar? :roflhard: Thanks so much again. Love to all :muah:
