I noticed that on row 4, you are knitting in the back loop. I see that occasionally you have done this on other stitches. Is there a reason and if so, why is it not noted on your instructions — such as “knit through the back loop. This is a bit confusing. Could you please clarify. Thank you so very much.

Hi Trajoy. There is nothing special just a simple purl stitch. I am using a continental way of knitting and this is the way how I grab yarn. Just go on with simple purl sts
