When a pattern says slip the next stitch, do you slip it knit wise or purl wise?
Thanks, I thought I had heard that but was not sure.socksaholic said:It is slipped purl wise unless the pattern specifies knit wise, which is unusual, but happens occasionally.
Therefore, when doing a: s1 k2tog psso, the s1 is slipped knit-wise?mirl56 said:Usually you only slip knit-wise when it's involved with a decrease of some sort.
Got it. Thanks.kcduffer said:I'm making a lace shawl with this decrease. Since I don't want the slipped and then psso stitch twisted, I slip it knit wise. I do whichever looks better to me.
