Purl Increase

I was instructed by an experienced knitter that when increasing in a purl stitch, purl the stitch normally, slip it off the needle, and then take the purled stitch off the right needle, turn it, place it back on the left needle and purl it again. Has anyone done this? Is there a tutorial video somewhere on the 'net?

Essentially that is a "purl front and back" -

and probably easier to perform that doing a "traditional" purl front and back without the stitch manipulation.

MMario - Can anybody tell me what year it is?

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

I've never done that - I just purl F&B and move on with my life . . . such as it is.
