PFB Question
Hi there -

New member here! I am a fairly new knitter - well actually been knitting a little over a year - but I am new to more complicated patterns... Anyway, I need some help!

PFB - I understand that this means purl front and back. I am making sure that I know the stitches required for Clapotis from Knitty - before I delve into it - but I cannot figure this one out!

Any tips on how to accomplish this stitch would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi Mher,

PFB = P1 (leaving stitch on left needle), p tbl (purl through the back loop)

There are videos for "p tbl" on Amy's "abbreviations explained" page:

http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...ons_explained/

So, you need to purl the stitch as you normally would, except that you don't slide the loop off the left needle to complete it. Then "purl into the back" of the same loop (see Amy's video), and then slip off the left needle.

Hope that makes sense...

Salsa!
THANKS so much for this link to the PFB video. (I come to this site for a lot of help, but didn't know Amy had videos for so many abbreviations explained.)
But I don't know that I would have put the building blocks together so manageably as you did (purl, and THEN p thru back...)

I'm also starting my first Clapotis, so ... many thanks!!

It's an awkward stitch at first, but by the time you're finished with the increase section it'll be easy...
