Purling in back
Purling in the back?~~~This Stitch is so confusing to me. I've looked high and low for a demo, or picture (since I do better with visual aids!), but haven't found one.

Can someone describe this stitch to me or direct me to a demo? Either would be great.

Also, I would love to find a good visual book on knitting ~With many pictures of actual real life models demo., rather than the drawings. for some reason the drawings never click as well for me.

thanks,
knitbebe

well i think this will be the video for that stitch http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...misc/p1tbl.mpg

if it isn't go to abbreviations explained and about 8 links down on the right side is the video.


can't help you with the books though, i can't see anything helpful in those pictures....learned everything by real life people or Amy's videos.

Hi,

I wanted to suggest that your pattern may have a front and back. The front may be knitted and the back may be purled. I think you will get a reply from a more experienced knitter who will tell you for sure.

best regards,

ps... if you say what you are knitting that may help also

Hi:
I am also a visual knitter (VERY visual) and I would recommend this book.

igot it out of the library, and I have learned a lot. Of course, amy's videos come in handy too, but my internet connection isn't terribly reliable, so books are good too.

Good Luck!!!
Katy

Brenda linked to the correct video....

I just had to learn this stitch for the shawl I am making. It produced a twisted purl stitch, just like knitting into the back produces a twisted knit stitch.

with your yarn in front, you are going to reach your right needle around the BACK of the stitch to be purled, and insert it FROM THE LEFT SIDE of the back of the stitch and through to the right-front of the stitch. that way you can wrap your yarn around the needle from the front and push it through to the back and then off the needle. Does that make sense? Well, Amy's videos are so clear, I couldnt even hope to explain them any better.

KK, are you sure that isn't a bad 80's rock band? :rollseyes:

I'm sorry. Back to the more serious discussion at hand.

Oh, and I forgot to add; the Coats & Clarks "Knitting Made Easy" is a good (and cheap!) cd for learning the basics of knitting. I find it helpful to be able to watch the knitter's hands as well. I am VERY much a visual learner.
