How's and Why's of Slipping Stitches: A Knitting Video Treatise!

I often get asked about slipping stitches, and when one should be slipping a stitch knitwise or purlwise... in most of my patterns I tell you, but sometimes you might run into a pattern that doesn't and this video will help you know which technique to use!



You'll learn a great rule in this video... but don't forget, rules are made to be broken!

And to wrap up a little blog business... Congrats to Sofia (cecbellz on Ravelry)... you are the winner of the Fino Necklace!

  2. That was actually helpful. I was tinkering just this morning on which way to slip my stitches on a s2kp. I did decide to do purlwise, but I like the rule of thumb.

  7. Thanks very much!! What if I knit "Eastern" (or whatever it's called) so I knit into the backs of stitches. Then would it all be reversed for me? (Slipping purl-wise twists and slipping knit-wise doesn't?) Thanks! Deb

    1. I need to play with it to be sure, but yes, I do believe you just "switch" my rule and it will work for you too!

  8. Hi, I am knitting the Novel T shirt (I am very exited about it ) but I'm stuck on the instructions for the -set up for right shoulder- row 3, If I slip the last two stitches of my row wyif, do I leave them unworked and knit them when I start my next row? the working yarn will be right before those two slipped stitches. HELP!!
