LK302. The Purl Stitch


The second-most common stitch in the knitting world is the purl stitch, which is sort of the opposite of a knit. Once you know how to knit and purl, you can make all sorts of patterns by combining the two stitches.

Lay the yarn loosely underneath the loop that is on the peg. Insert the hook under that loop, and scoop up the working yarn, thus creating a new loop.
Take the existing loop off of the peg, and replace it with the loop that is pulled through.

  1. Thank you SO much, Sophia! I have searched for easy to understand instructions for different loom stitches for a long time. You are GREAT! Your instructions are very easy to follow, you have a pleasant voice and go at a pace very easily understood. I am so grateful and will now be expanding my loom knitting projects. Thank you so very much!
