Learn to knit-back-backwards and purlback-backwards to impress your friends and neighbors. More than just a parlor trick, these techniques can make small bits of back-and-forth knitting much more fun; it’s especially useful for working Entrelac, short rows, bobbles, and tiny knitted pieces. Instead of “K10, turn, P10, turn” you’ll know how to “K10, knit-backbackward 10,” and so on—no purling required to create Stockinette stitch while knitting flat. Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off
One ball of yarn that knits at 4 or 5 sts to the inch, needles in a size appropriate for your yarn (circ or straight).
