Huh? Pearl front + back
Hi everyone,

I know how to increase by knitting into the front and back of a stitch, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to pearl a stitch front and back. I have looked at books and tutorials but I just can't get it. Part of the problem is that I'm left-handed and this definitely confuses me!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

To purl into the front and back of a stitch, purl into the front loop as normal, and don't slide it off.

Then bring your needle around to the back and insert it from left to right into the back loop, twist the needle around to the front in 'purling position' and purl it. It can be awkward, but it's doable.
