I am new to this forum and surprised how quickly I found this exact topic relevant to my current problem. I can see that I'll be a frequent visitor here. What a great forum.
OK, I've been knitting a long time, but have never had a pattern say "pick up stitches purlwise." I know this is probably simple, but could someone describe this, or maybe post a link to some directions (visual)?
Edited & added: I think I figured it out. Purl side or work facing me, I inserted from back to front (from k to p side) and with new yarn in front, I picked up sts. It appeared that the ridge created was on the wrong side of work. BTW, this is an entrelac purse.
Does this sound right?
