Does anyone know how to "pick up and purl", not pick up and knit. I have never heard of this and wonder if anyone has come across it.

I did a bit of research on this subject about a year ago. I finally decided you just pick up a stitch as if to knit or purl, the first time around. Then you knit or purl the picked up stitch when you come back around. That works for me.

I always wanted my own library but I didn't realize it would be all knitting books!

I'm still having trouble wrapping my head around pick-up-and-knit, and now we have pick up and purl?
Yarn happens. What's a fiberholic to do?

Proof that there is always something new to learn - this is new to me.

Instead of inserting your needle from front to back through each new loop, as you would if picking up as knit, insert needle from back to front, and thus purl the newly picked-up stitch.

Another "misnomer" if you ask me. Instead of the two-part instruction 1)Pick up. 2)Purl. I think of this as "purl across". For example, "purl accross edge stiches". It works like a charm!

I have used "pick up and purl" before to keep an established ribbing pattern (it must have been the thumb for a pair of mittens or something). I just picked up the stitch and purled it through the back loop.
