If I’m making a sweater in circ needles and ask for knitting all around, could I purl all aroun and later turn the piece inside out? :??
Sure, I don’t see why not. But you may have to adjust the increases and decreases. But Someone else may need to jump into this thread to help solve that.
Yes you can. As humblestumble said, you might want to look at the way the decreases lean, but otherwise it won’t really matter. Or, come to think of it, you can just purl on the inside of the circs and still have the knits on the outside. Then you’re constructing the sweater as written, just doing the stitches on the back, if you get what I mean.
That is soooo good to know!! :cheering: Thank you guys!
No problem, please post results when you are on your way!
Now that, my friend, may take forevah! :roflhard: :roflhard:
Ah,… Amen to that :cheering:
So, you actually like purling? :??
Ooohhh… I purl much easier indeed!!
Is all about the yarn in neck, kwim?
It’s not that unusual to prefer purling! (I think…)
I knit pretty tightly so I find it easier to get the needle in purlwise than knitwise.
That happens to me too… I knit tighter than I purl…
I like to purl just as much as I like to knit
I purl too loose, but knit too tight :doh: .
but I purl faster than I knit. weird :?? .
I like doing one or the other, but I don’t care so much for having to switch off like ribbing.
