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