Norwegian Purling

Norwegian purling is a way to keep the working yarn in back while you’re purling Continental (holding the working yarn in your left hand).

Early on in the video, I say “working yarn in your right hand” – I misspoke. You’ll see in the video that Continental knitters hold the working yarn in their left. 🙂

The yarn I use for demonstration is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky.

The needles I’m using are Knitter’s Pride Bamboo Double Pointed Needles. (No real need to use DPNs for this technique, I’m just using them here because they’re short and they work well on camera.)

My nail polish is by Julep, color “Channon”.

One comment on “Norwegian Purling

  1. Norwegian purling saved my knitting life! I used to despise purling so much that I would try to do the very least I could, ever. I completely avoided certain projects so as to minimize the amount of purling in my life. After learning this technique, I don’t LOVE purling, but it doesn’t bother me to the point of avoiding it like I used to. Thanks for a clear demonstration of a great technique.
