Knitting video demo: The Purl Stitch

A demonstration of how to do the purl stitch, with yarn held in the right hand (English style). There is no audio; simply follow along as the purl stitch is demonstrated, very slowly, twenty times. I refer to and demonstrate the 2nd stitch pause, in which the knitter makes the 2nd stitch of the row and then slightly cinches it up, which helps control the loops that can appear on the edge of the knitted piece.
