Yep, purl like you normally do, don't slip the st off, and purl again through the back of it. It's a little awkward at first, until you get used to it.

yup that is exactly what it is. Purl like you normally would, but don't slip off the needle then go around the back ( it is a bit combersome...LOL...but not as bad as the M1P) and purl then slip off the needle. It sort of twist the stitch. You have made an increase.

Thanks!!!! I don't have anything OTN that calls for that, but when I saw it I got curious.
