Stop Turning: Knitting & Purling Backwards with Patty Lyons
My favorite knitting trick is to stop turning! If you hate purling, are unhappy with your uneven tension, or simply aren’t crazy about flipping that 400-stitch basket-weave afghan around every time it’s time to do a WS row, learn the joy of never turning! We will learn how to put the knit stitch and the purl stitch in reverse, as well as learn basic decreases, short rows, and picking up stitches backwards. Knitting and purling backwards is great for entrelac, bobbles, short rows, and chart work.

Supplies
Any worsted or chunky weight, non splitty yarn and whatever needle works with your yarn.

Homework
Cast on 20 stitches, work in stockinette for three rows, ending with a RS row (ready for a WS row). No garter edge.
