Just wondering

I just watched a video on how to purl with the yarn held in the back. I’m just wondering, is there a time when this is actually needed? Or is it a preferance thing?

Thanks!

hmmmmm, interesting… do you have a link to the video? I too would like to check this out n see what they have to say bout it.

No idea why/when to use it, but Amy has a video of it, Norwegian purling under videos, purl, towards the bottom of that page.

It’s just a different way to purl and some people prefer to use it all the time to another method.

Here is the link…
