How To: Slip a Stitch Knitwise

Slip a Stitch Knitwise

There are times when your pattern will direct you to slip a stitch. Usually, this is done on a knit row. I always slip the first stitch of every row because it makes a neater selvedge. It's a very simple technique. Here's what to do:

  1. Put your right needle into the first stitch on the left needle as you normally would.
  2. Instead of knitting it off, simply slip it off to the right needle.
  3. Continue knitting your pattern as directed.
