I hope everyone made it through Part One and Two of our How to Knit for Beginners series. We covered how to make a slip knot, cast on, the knit stitch, and garter stitch. Today, I’ll teach you how to purl and create that nice flat stockinette stitch.
If you’d like to see the full coaster pattern featured in the video and a brief introduction to reading patterns, you can find both of them here. If you’d like to see the techniques slowed down even more, here is a photo walkthrough of how to do the purl stitch:
You have now purled one stitch! Repeat this across the row and you’re in business. Stay tuned until next week and we’ll learn how to Cast Off.
Salt and Pepa’s here, and we’re in effect. Want you to Purl it, babe.
