Are you ready to learn the Purl Stitch? I hope so, because that’s what you will be learning in this 4th part of my Knitting 101 Series.

So far, we have learned in previous lessons –

For this post, we will be focusing on the Purl Stitch.

Here is a sample of a piece that is made working a row of knit and a row of purl back and forth multiple times –

Abbreviation –

If you read a knitting pattern, the purl stitch is often abbreviated as ‘P’. So, if you see ‘P 20’ in a pattern, that simply means to Purl 20 stitches.

Most patterns will list their specific key chart to let you know exactly how each stitch is abbreviated.

For those of y’all that are visual learners, check out my Youtube channel for the video tutorial.
