11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Since when is there a back to a loop? on: May 25, 2004 11:26:08 PM
Earlier tonight I came across a knitting pattern that calls for ktbl (knitting through back of loop), and I just realized that all along while knitting I have never really paid attention to which way I knit or purl.

Mostly I'll knit "properly", (as I found out after a quick google search,)  by putting the needle through the front of the loop, but I noticed that when purling, I tend to do it through the back of the loop.
Does it really make that much of a difference?

Though I do remember once trying to knit a swatch of an eyelet stitch, where the eyelets wouldn't form unless I purled tbl, even though the pattern just called for a normal purl stitch....
