The purl stitch is the opposite of the knit stitch. When you look at the
wrong side (WS) of the fabric, the knit stitch is the purl stitch.
Likewise, the purl stitch looks like the knit stitch on the wrong side (WS)
of the fabric. This is a basic knitting stitch that
all beginners should learn.
Bring the working yarn in front of the peg,
below the existing wrap.
Place the knitting tool above the wrap in
the groove of the peg.
Turn and slide the knitting tool down into
the groove under the wrap.
Grab the working yarn with the knitting
tool by circling around the outside and then
and then around the bottom catching the working
yarn as you slide the knitting tool up the
groove of the peg. This will create a new wrap.
Grab this new wrap with your fingers and
pull up taking the wrap off of the peg.
Place the wrap you are holding in your
fingers on the peg.
Pull the working yarn to tighten the wrap
on the peg if necessary.
