Learn to Knit Series – Purl Stitch

Hey, isn’t knitting a flat stitch? Not the bumpy texture from rows of knitting! The secret is to alternate rows of knitting with rows of purling. So let’s learn to purl.

Congratulations you just learned two new stitches. That’s right 2 new stitches! And for the second lesson in a row. Alternating a row of the knit stitches with a row of purl stitches you also learned the stockinette stitch. Who’d a thought – another two-fer. Talk about double knit.

The Garter Stitch creates a fun bumpy texture. We particularly like that bumpy texture for dish clothes as it makes cleaning dishes easier. Look for our video on dish clothes coming soon!
