M1L, M1R, and the Bar increase all have video with purl (at the bottom of the description) 3) I'll have to get back to you on that. It is much to early for me and math. Hope that helped some!

That will get you to 19 st on your needle. The purl rows you knit straight across. From what is here you don't have to increase in a p row. But in the event that you do, you can p two into one st. For the second one you go around the left needle and come at the st from left to right in the back loop.

As I said in an earlier post I'm a fairly new knitter and knit continental style. I actually learned how to knit as a young girl and somehow I was knitting in a manner that I was twisting all my stitches. By watching the bideos I saw what I was doing wrong and have self- corrected. For whatever reason I couldn't hear the sound on the explanation for adding a stitch while purling. Fortuneatley, thanks to forum members who interpretted the pattern, I don't have to master that skill today! Thank you again, Elana
