the good thing about socks, is that if you remember where you 'messed up' on sock #1, and you deliberately do the same 'mistake' on sock #2, it magically stops being a mistake and becomes a design feature
You're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I'm tripping you
Can I add to this question? I'm wondering if this only applies to socks. Because when I read basic stitch tutorials they always say for a SSK you should slip 2 knitwise then knit them together. But when I took a sock class the teacher said always slip purlwise unless the pattern states otherwise. So I'm confused.
If an ssk is requested then the pattern *DOES* specifically ask for you to slip knitwise - because that is how an ssk is performed. But if it just says "slip one" then you slip it purlwise. Because (standard) is that if you are to slip a stitch knitwise it will say "slip knitwise"
