Yarn is held in left hand. The middle finger (or index finger) is used to push the yarn down and to the right, to where the right needle can easily push it back through the stitch. This method requires the fewest hand movements of any purl method, and is consequently the fastest (with the exception, perhaps, of the "Combined Knitting Method" of purling--see below). This is the method I use in the Continental purl videos on this site. Videos where the yarn is held in the left hand, all have a pink icon.
This method of purling, when combined with Continental Knitting (see my Knit Stitch Video), makes for a very fast ribbing.
