Not a practical substitute for all purling needs, but fine for working stockinette stitch. This produces the same exact stitch as the purl stitch, it just does it with the knit side still facing you.

This is a great method if you are working a narrow piece of knitting, as when doing Entrelac, and are tired of having to turn the work every five stitches. With this method you can work a whole entrelac piece without turning the work! The limitation of this stitch is that you can’t easily alternate it in the row with knitting, like to do ribbing.

This may look like “Left Handed Knitting,” but you wrap the yarn the other way for that method.
