Knitting In Reverse

To avoid constant turning of the work, you can knit and purl from the same side. To purl from the knit side: With RS facing and yarn in back, insert left needle into first st on right needle from front to back, wrap yarn over top of needle and then around to back, and pull loop through. Or, simply hold work with WS facing, insert needle as if to purl and wrap yarn around, turn work so RS faces, noting where and how the needle and yarn are positioned, and continue to purl from the knit side.
