Nope, only if it asks you to pass slipped stitch over.

Also, if it's in a knit row you want to slip the stitch knitwise and if it's in a purl row you slip the stitch purlwise. Make sense?

Generally, to keep the stitch from twisting on your needles, you need to slip the stitch purl-wise; as in, insert the RH needle as if to purl, but just transfer over to the right needle without looping the yarn and pulling through.

As for knit or purl - take into account what your next stitch will be. If you are going to knit the next stitch, your yarn will need to be pulled to the back when you slip. If you are going to purl the next, your yarn will need to be pulled forward. This is to make sure your feed yarn ends up in the right place to make your next stitch.

There are times when you need to slip a stitch knit-wise, but it will result in a twisted stitch. Try it; when you slip purl wise, the loop arcs from back to front, left to right; the right side of the loop is on the front of your needle. When you slip knit wise, the right side of the loop is on the back of the needle.

Let me know if this doesn't make any sense...

ok, now will someone answer this question, pls.
If the directions say to p1, sl2 wyib, p2, do I slip purlwise or knitwise? Same for the next row that says to k2, sl2 wyif, k2. Do I slip purlwise or knitwise? "wyif" and "wyib" is confusing me. Thanks so much. Glenda :XX:
