pfb (Purl Increase)

A purl increase is made by purling into the front and back of a stitch. Use of this stitch allows the knitter to increase while maintaining the established pattern. Try this increase the next time you are faced with increasing into a purl stitch and give your knitting a professional touch!

    Just watch the purl increase video. So simple, but I am not sure I could have figured it out myself.

    Love your website. Yours is the only one I use for help. Thanks so much.

    I had no idea this was so easy. I’ve ripped out my purl increases so much, I was ready to give it up completely. Thank you. I finally get. No more ripping out!
