Want a faster way to turn a heel? KNITFreedom is all about better, faster and easier, and this technique is one of my favorites. This video comes as a bonus in my sock video e-books, and I wanted to share it with you here.
Knowing how to knit (well, purl, really) backwards is optional, but take a look and see if you feel comfortable trying it on your next sock heel. It will save you a lot of time because if you know how to do it, you don’t have to turn your work back and forth every row.
In this video I show you the American and Continental way to purl backwards
This technique is very useful in Entrelac knitting, where you constantly have to turn your work after only a few stitches, and, of course, in turning any sock heels or doing any kind of short-rows.
Yay! In only five minutes, you've learned to purl backwards and added another skill to your bag of tricks!
