Slipping stitches

Many patterns tell you to slip 1 or more stitches. This is done by passing the slipped stitches across from the left to the right needle without actually working them. Stitches can be slipped knitwise or purlwise.

1 To slip a stitch knitwise. insert the tip of the right needle into the next stitch on the left needle exactly as if you were going to knit the stitch. Pull this stitch off the left needle without knitting it. The stitch is now on the right needle.

2 To slip a stitch purlwise. insert the tip of the right needle into the next stitch on the left needle exactly as if you were going to purl the stitch. Pull this stitch off the left needle without purling it. The stitch is now on the right needle.
