Don’t p and k mean the same thing in knitting terminology?
Do you mean in a knitting pattern? P would stand for purl and k stands for knit.
They’re exact opposites of each other.
Yes, they’re of a knitting pattern.
Except that the reverse side of a knit is a purl and the reverse side of a purl is a knit…
But yes, in a pattern, k means to knit the st, and p means to purl it.
How are they different? I may need a video to comprehend their difference. I don’t understand, as I am a beginner. I only know how to knit a scarf and a hand cloth.
Edit: I formerly watch a video, and it causes me to comprehend their difference. I am grateful, for you point out their difference.
K, in knitting the K stands for knit which if you look at them from the side you are doing them they look like v’s
and P stands for purl which look like upside down u’s or bumps.
When knitting you insert your needle under the front leg of the stitch, going front to back with your yarn in back.
When purling you insert your needle under the front leg of the stitch, going back to front with your yarn in the front.
