How do you switch from knit to purl on same row?

I apologize if this has already been answered somewhere.

I made a simple scarf now I am trying to move on up with a dishcloth. It calls for knitting and then purling, but I don’t know how to switch from one to the other on the same row without it getting messed up (since it needs to be in the back for knitting and in the front for purling)

Here is what I am trying to do:

Thank you!!

It’s really easy. Before you purl your stitch, just move the yarn between the two needles from the back to the front. And when you’ve finished purling and are ready to knit again, do the same thing only from front to back this time.

Oh ok thank you!! I tried this but I must have done it wrong because it created a vertical line on the work. I’ll try again- thanks for the reply! :slight_smile:

I’m a visual person, so I found the ribbing video (found HERE) to be especially helpful (scroll down to Basic Stitch Patterns to find it).

That’s a good idea, Rebecca! When I first started using this forum, I wasn’t able to get the videos to work, so I tend to forget they’re out there! good job!

Thanks I get it now that I watched the video!!

I got it! Thanks!! :slight_smile:
