This is now normal purling looks like – see needle in front – normal purling. But, when doing Entrelac, constantly turning your work back and front to knit and purl makes for wasted energy. You can work your entrelac from one side with very little turning except for when you need to pick up your stitches to go on to your next square. What follows is a “knitting backwards lesson”. If you have questions – you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more help!
When working backwards you do not turn your work – see the yarn coming from the left side of my work? This is a purl row and I am working it from the right side (or knitting side) of my work.
Now work your next stitch. I found this technique incredibly easy when working with a small number of stitches. I don’t know why you could not use it on a longer row, but when you are knitting 20 or more stitches it does not make as much sense.
Here is your lesson for the day! Now I have helped you learn a new technique! Have a great weekend everyone
