In Chicago at the Knittin’ To It Club seminar with Tanya Kudinoff, Tanya suggested that we try the UX setting on our machines for a different look. On the left is the knit side and on the right is the purl side.( The following sample pictures will be the knit on the left and the purl on the right.
In these two samples, I think the purl side is the prettier side. I like the lacy look and it does not bunch up a lot if it was all tuck.(Pattern slips in one direction and tucks in the other direction)
