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.

Thank you!

Welcome to KH! Congratulations on your first project! You must be so excited! No need for embarrassment It may seem like a simple question, but it is one that has given many pause to ponder

Slipping the stitch either knitwise or purlwise is used to place the stitch on your right needle in a certain position. I would slip knitwise on the knit rows and purlwise on the purl rows.

Feel free to ask any questions, we are here to help. If you are inclined, we always love to see photos of work in progress, or of finished objects; you can post photos to the "What'cha Knittin'?" sub-forum.

Thank you so much for your answer. It makes sense but I wanted to be sure.

Well, I may post the results. It's a very modest project. I didn't want to start with something complicated.

Do you have a page I can see?

Thanks again. You're a
