How to Increase with PRL (Purl through Right Loop)

This method is used any time an increase will be performed on the wrong side, which will appear as a right-leaning increase on the RS. The increased stitch is created before the next purl stitch.

Set-up

With your right needle, come up through the head of the purl bump just below the one on your left needle, from bottom to top.

Step 1

Place this loop on the left needle without twisting.

Step 2

Insert the right needle tip through the back loop of the new stitch, from back to front, and purl. I have found that this method leaves a hole with some highly-twisted yarns. If this happens, purl this stitch through the front loop instead of the back loop.
