[Knitting] Knitting Backwards

[Copy link]

for some reason some people hat purling. or maybe they don't want to do a lot of turning their work when dealing with a small knitting project, or turning a lot as you would have to do in Enterlac knitting.
so lets see if i can explain this so you can understand it. i haven't done this as yet. I don't have a problem with purling and i haven't tried enterlac either.

1. after knitting a row. instead of turning, leave your work facing you. Insert the left needle into the loop leaving it behind the right needle.



2. wrap your yarn around, back to frount and pull through the stitch. taking the remain loop of the right needle.

here is another explanation.

        Hold yarn in your right hand.         
          Insert left-hand needle into stitch from row you just finished, inserting          needle from the front (left) toward the back (right).         
           The left-hand needle will be behind the right-hand needle.           
            To knit stitch, bring yarn over left-hand needle (lifting yarn up and            over the top of the needle)            
            Back left-hand needle out of stitch from previous row,  being very             careful not to drop newly created stitch.            
            Slide stitch from previous row off  right-hand needle.


i hope you found this informative and usefull.

Have never heard about such method. Seems quite difficult if you are not both right and left handed...

I love purling, but at times I can see the usefulness of knitting or purling backwards. However, whenever I try it, my stitches are not as even, so I haven’t done much with it. I guess I need to just give in and do a big swatch for practice.

It does work and is quite easy once you get a rhythm going.  This is something I've been meaning to try and now I have!
Thanks for posting.

Thank you for this! I like to knit backwards in the continental method when I have very short rows because I hate having to turn the work.

I have just knitted a baktus using this technique. It was fun! I am looking forward to use it in more complex knittings.
