Video: Purling on Magic Loop (How to Start with a Purl Stitch)
A KnitFreedom member emailed me and asked,"What if I am starting the round with a purl stitch? I keep messing up!"
Does this sound familiar? If you knit American-style (with the yarn in your right hand), it is easy to get messed up.
The key is making sure the working yarn is underneath your right needle before you begin the stitch. Otherwise you will get an extra loop.
