  1. They are not the same. Purl through the back loop will just twist the stitch. Purl front and back (pfb) is an increase stitch. Check out my video to learn how to execute the stitch. Happy knitting!

  2. Is this the same as purl front to back? My pattern calls for purl front to back (pfb)
    Thanks for all your help

  3. I recently took a class based on the Building Blocks book. The best thing I learned in this class is access to the website knitpurlhunter. Everything I have looked at has been explained so clearly and easy to understand. Kudos to Ms. Hunter and her “happy knitting”
