Purl increases? Can I purl a garment in the round instead of knit it?
I just taught myself Portuguese knitting, which I love. Purling is much faster than knitting in this method, so I'd like to make the Green Gable sweater inside out--purling instead of knitting it in the round. I'm thinking this HAS to be possible.

So here are my questions to make it happen:
  1. What is the best way to increase for raglan shaping? Remember, I'm PURLING. On the instructions, every other row, you k1f&b, slip marker, k1f&b at the shoulders. How do I adapt this for purling?
  2. Will my "Lace" section look the same? Can I just p2tog, yo instead of k2tog, yo?
