Very odd question about circ...
If I'm making a sweater in circ needles and ask for knitting all around, could I purl all aroun and later turn the piece inside out? :thinking:

Sure, I don't see why not. But you may have to adjust the increases and decreases. But Someone else may need to jump into this thread to help solve that.

Yes you can. As humblestumble said, you might want to look at the way the decreases lean, but otherwise it won't really matter. Or, come to think of it, you can just purl on the inside of the circs and still have the knits on the outside. Then you're constructing the sweater as written, just doing the stitches on the back, if you get what I mean.

So, you actually *like* purling?

It's not that unusual to prefer purling! (I think....)

I knit pretty tightly so I find it easier to get the needle in purlwise than knitwise.
