I'm working on the Crystal Palace cotton twirl woman's shrug and can't quite figure out how to knit into the purl bumps to increase.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Youtube rocks! What on earth did we do before it?!? Or I should say...look at what we did not do (or know) before it..

YouTube provides hundreds of videos having to do with knitting instructions. Here's a list of ones you will find that answer your question about increasing in a purl stitch:

Thanks!! I guess what threw me was the term "purl bumps".

Appreciate all your help.

It that what it says to do - literally - Neg? Look for notes in your pattern for this stitch's explanation.

Otherwise, I just swatched this and picked up that purl bump and literally knitted into it - then I knitted into the remaining loop of that stitch still on the other needle = increasing one.

Increase on purl - needle into front of purl stitch and w/o taking stitch off the needle, proceed into the back of the purl stitch. bring thread over back of needle and purl off completed two-part stitch as one. There are good videos on YouTube for such an instruction, too.
