I am working off a pattern for the first time by myself and have a question about slip stitching. I am grateful to find a forum in which to ask my question. In my pattern (for a shawl) in Row 1 I have to slip a stitch, M1 and then k and then in Row 2 I have to slip 1 and pearl. My question is when I am slipping on the knit side do I slip the stitch as if I were going to knit it and then when I slip on the pearl side do I slip as if I were going to pearl it i.e. slip in the front?
