When I made Narnia, one of the stitch that is difficult for me to make was p2tog tbl (purl 2 together through the back loops). It was because I am a tight knitter. After some failed attemps to do this stitch repeatedly, in the end I used the 2 steps method. If you are a tight knitter like me, you might want to try this method:
1. Slip 2 stitches purlwise from left needle to right needle.
2. Reinsert the left needle along side the right one so both needles come out side by side, points together. Remove the right needle.
3. You have twisted the stitches just like below picture. All you have to do is just purl them off like normal p2tog.
See, easier to do, just takes longer because there are two steps. Try it yourself!
I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 4 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing my own patterns, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year. My patterns can be found on my blog
and through Etsy and on Ravelry.
