No, I meant wrap the yarn the other way when you wrap your yarn to do the purl. Normally the yarn goes over the top of it, but this way means you bring it under. Look at the way you normally purl and bring the yarn the other way.

Also.. you could try purling through the back loop, but I find this works better and PBL is slower and more awkward.
