Hi, I am familiar with slip purlwise and slip knitwise stitches. In the pattern I am doing, there are two instances in the first pattern row where I have to "slip stitch purlwise". The next and every alternate row instructs: "Knit all knit stitches and purl stitches as they appear".
My problem is - How do I treat the purlwise slipped stitch when doing the next row? Do I need to knit that slipped stitch or purl it?
The pattern is from Paton's Book No 1232 - Style 3
I have searched the internet every where and can't find it explained anywhere. Thanks in anticipation for your help.
When you are continuing in a pattern that has been set in a previous row (i.e. if you are told to "Knit all knit stitches and purl stitches as they appear" each stitch on a new row is the opposite stitch to the previous row. If a stitch on the previous row was a purl stitch, it will be a knit stitch on the next row, if it was a knit stitch, it will be a purl.
That being the case, the stitch that was slipped purlwise, is probably going to be a knit stitch.
