Help!! Question about slipping stitches.
I'm making a pilot cap. Pattern says:

Cast on 41 stitches and knit rows 1-4. DONE

*starting with row 5, be sure to slip (as if to purl) the last 3 stitches on each row.

Row 5: knit 20 stitches across, place marker, M1, knit 1, place marker and knit remaining stitches. ---So, I've done everything, but when I got to the last 3 stitches, instead of knitting them, I slipped them from the left needle to the right needle purlwise. Isn't that what I was supposed to do???

But, then when I turned my work to start row 6, my working yarn is 3 stitches ahead of the first 3 stitches. Am I making any sense???

Help, I'm so confused!!!

I would let the yarn drape across those stitches and work them at the beginning of the row. Looking at the picture (I'm assuming it's the Little Turtle Knits pattern?) it looks like those edge stitches are only knit every other row. That's what I'd do, anyway. It probably keeps the front from being too floppy. Or, come to think of it, if you let the yarn pull tight on those stitches, it will create a little hem. :thinking:
