|Sample knit with Patons Classic Wool (hand dyed) on US Size 10 needles|
Super simple stitch, and great for those who don't mind purling.
I found this in an old book. Old books sometimes referred to purl as pearl, and this was called "Pearl Stitch"; the instructions also stated to 'pearl' the stitches. But, I thought it confusing to label this Purl Stitch, so I just left it spelled as I found it.
These edges are awfully sloppy, even with the extra stitch on each side; I'd add a few more to neaten things up.
