When knitting, a purl stitch is created by bringing the yarn through the back of the object instead of the front. The next step is to go from right to left as you put the right needle into the front of a stitch on the left-hand needle. Once more, construct a new stitch by pulling your knitting thread through the right needle while bringing it through the reverse direction.
