I learned to knit specifically so I could do a particular pattern, Little Turtle Knits Ribby Wrap diaper cover in wool. Reading over the pattern, I've found directions on here for everything so far except the slip stitch.
The pattern directs you to slip the last stitch in every row so that a crochet gusset can be added at the end. When I'm doing a 1x1 rib and have to slip the last stitch, which way do I slip it and where should the yarn be? If the next stitch should be a purl, should the yarn be in front? And in the back if the next stitch should be knit? Or does it matter? Do I slip the stitch straight across (is that purl-wise?)? Or do I twist it (is that knit-wise?)? Does that depend on which stitch the next one would be? I've been practicing on a dishcloth, and I'm not getting the nice neat edge I expected so I suspect I'm doing something wrong.
Thank you for any clarification.
