Lining Stitch
I am starting a pattern for knit slippers. The lining stitch is as follows: knit to the last 2 stitches, pass your thread as if to purl, then you slip the stitch, K the last stitch. in the next row you knit it backwards. Do you knit the whole row backwards or only the stitch that you slipped? Row 1 is knit Row 2 is K10 P1 K11 P1 K10.

I moved your post to the How-to Forum. The Blog Forum is only for people who want to have a blog thread. It's rarely used anymore so few people see anything written there so it's best to put your questions in the proper forum.

What is it your making? Do you have a link to the pattern?

I'm not sure what you mean by backwards... do you mean literally knit backwards or do you mean to turn your work like when you're working short rows?

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Knit just the slipped stitch backwards, or through the back loop. It'll give you an elongated knit pattern near one edge of garter stitch.
