K1b- to create fisherman's rib?
I am attempting a pair of slippers from a book I picked up at costco- I was doing great until I got to this abbreviation "(K1,K1b)" and it is explained as follows-
"K1b= knit into the next st one row below, slipping st above off left needle (this creates fisherman's rib pattern)"
It is just about as clear as mud to me!
But, do they mean to knit the bar in b/w the st?
I am confused because then slipping the next stitch off would create a dropped stitch, right?
I am tempted to just garter stitch it and forget the whole rib thing...

Oh, and I am using wool ease and size 6 circs...
