Slip purlwise or knitwise?
ok so maybe this question has already been asked but I can't seem to find it so I am going to ask anyways.

When asked to slip fist stitch on RS row is this slipping purlwise or knitwise I am Knitting my first sock.

Always slip Purl-wise unless the pattern specifically states otherwise.

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

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"

When you slip for a decrease, as in SSK or SKP, you slip knitwise.

another rule of thumb I've heard - If *all* you are doing is slipping, slip purlwise; if the slipped stitch is part of a decrease - slip knitwise. (unless otherwise speccified, of course)
