The trick to switching between knit and purl is to have your yarn in the right position. For knit, the yarn needs to be in back of the needles; for purl, in front of the needles.

When you switch from knit to purl, you have to bring the yarn between the needles to work the purl. When you go from purl to knit, you have to bring the yarn back between the needles to the back to knit.
