I just purchased a new pattern book and want to make one of the sweaters. I am fairly new to knitting and have never seen this stitch combination before. The author calls it the slip-stitch rib. K1 sl 1(purlwise). How is this done? Can anyone help?
Just knit the first stitch, then slip the next stitch onto your right needle as if you were going to purl it, that is, right to left through the front of the loop. Don't wrap any yarn here. Just slip, k, slip, k, slip, k. Pretty simple.
