How to Purl English Style
There are two main styles of carrying your yarn in knitting. One is with your left hand, often called Continental or picking and the other is with your right hand, usually called English or throwing. This video shows you how to work a purl stitch English style.
The most important thing, especially for beginning knitters, is to get the right tension on the yarn and applying consistent tension. Try different methods to tension your yarn until you find a way that is comfortable and works for you consistently.
You may notice that your purl stitches are looser than your knit stitches, this is normal and with practice your tension will improve and you will get faster. You can do it!
