Purl Stitch

Purl Stitch (p)

This stitch is the reverse of the knit stitch.

1. Place the working yarn in front of the peg, below the loop on the peg. Insert the knit hook thru the loop on the peg from the top down.


2. Reach down to catch the working yarn with the knit hook. Pull the working yarn up through the loop on the peg, forming a new loop.


3. Hold the new loop on your hook. Then pull the loop that is still on the peg up and off the peg.


4. Place the new loop onto the peg. Gently tug on the working yarn to tighten the stitch.
