Video: Pick Up and Hide Purl Wraps – Wrap and Turn on the Purl Side (Short Rows)
If you use the same technique to hide purl wraps as you do to hide knit wraps, the right side of your work will be a mess.
The problem with the “intuitive” way of picking up purl wraps is that it places the wrap in front of the stitch.
The challenge is to find an easy way to get that wrap in the back, which is exactly what our trick does.
- Knit to the wrapped purl stitch.
- Using the right-hand needle, pick up the wrap from the right side of the work.
- Place the wrap on the left-hand needle over and behind the stitch it was wrapping.
- Purl those two stitches together.
