First knitting project ever question
Hello, this is my first post and my first knitting project.
I have searched the internet and this site for the answer to my question, I try not to trouble people without doing research first. I apologize for my research skills in advance if the answer is out there.
I am making simple wrist warmers as a first project.
I am stuck on row two:
Cast on 40 st.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: sl 1, purl to last st, k1.
Row 3: sl 1, k to end.
Row 4: sl 1, p to last st, k1.
How do I know whether the slip is purl or knit? Instructions say the slip will create an even edge so I'm not sure whether it's made to fit with the next row and whether it should be purl...
Embarrassingly simple question I know, but I haven't been able to find the answer.
