Tips Instead of purling your second row, you can knit it instead. This will create what is called the stockinette stitch. In stockinette stitch, one side of your fabric will be smooth and the other will be bumpy, giving a very professional finish.
Stockinette stitch is a popular choice for knitters and allows you to knit almost anything you want. Many sweaters are made with knit one row, purl the next row, so that the outside of the sweater is not bumpy but smooth, just like a bought sweater.
The inside, the side next to your body, has the bumps. Look at a store bought sweater for an example. Practice with large needles and thick yarn.
