YOUR ANSWER


Hi Barb

It is kinda the same but a little different if you know what I mean.

You start with the first f - insert the tip of your working needle into the front of the stitch to be worked and form a purl stitch but do not slip the original stitch off the needle as you normally would.

Then reinsert the tip of the working needle into the back loop of the original stitch (from back to front) and work your second purl stitch.

Then you insert the tip of the needle back into the front loop of the original stitch and form another purl stitch.

You should now have three new stitches on your working needle and the original stitch still on the other needle.

Now slip the original stitch off the needle and you are done.
