Avoiding the dreaded purl blips with Sheila Joynes
Are you one of those knitters who would like to avoid the purl bumps that are visible on the reverse side when you change colors? The right side looks right, but the wrong side looks wrong. Would you like both faces of your shawls to look good as you fling them around your shoulders? Scarves, blankets, shawls and lapels are just a few of the items that will benefit greatly from these techniques.
Join Elise and you will learn how Knit One Below and a number of other techniques can overcome this dilemma. Some options are subtle, some are decorative, but all are preferable to those dreaded purl blips. Let’s get together and make the wrong side right.
Smooth, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn in two highly contrasting solid colors, needles in size appropriate for the yarn.
