Another stitch question
I was looking at scarf patterns and came across this...
http://oceanwindknits.ca/sectionpage...ree%20patterns
I understand that sl1wyb and sl1wyf means slip one with yarn at back (or at front).
For some reason that confuses me (not hard to do). Would I knit the next stitch with the yarn in front/back or what? When would I move the yarn back where it needs to be?
See, I told you I am confused.

My understanding of this is that you would move the yarn to the front or back to do the specified slip stitch and then, before continuing with your knitting, you would move the yarn back to its original position.

Yep, that's right; you're moving the yarn just to slip the stitch, then it goes back to where it was for the next stitch.

Thanks! I'll give it a try.
I think I'll do a swatch of the pattern before I do the scarf.

Always a good idea. You'll get a much better idea of what's really going on.

It's kinda strange to me. The sl1wyb/wyf are at the beginning of the rows. I keep getting extra stitches.
Being that they are at the beginning of the rows does it matter????

Oh, it's to make a slip stitch edging and you shouldn't be getting an extra stitch. Move the yarn between the needle tips like ribbing, not over the needle.
1st row - Sl1wyb, p1 - leave the yarn in back, slip the st, then bring it to the front to make the purl st.
2nd row - Sl1wyf, k1 leave yarn in front, slip st, move to the back for the knit st.

It may wrap the yarn around the slipped st for a firmer edge. Or you could just knit or purl the first st, or slip knitwise with yarn in back and work the next st.

That makes sense!!!
I was trying to figure out where to put the yarn *before* I even slipped the stitch.

It's a project I'm making for myself, so if it's not perfect that's ok, at least I'll learn how to do it.
