I'm a new knitter, and I love it! I'm about to tackle my first sweater. I'm using the lionbrand.com pattern #1304
The pattern has this note at the beginning.
• Slip first st at beg of each row as if to knit.[/COLOR]
So, do I really slip the first stitch at the beginning of each and every row? In the instructions it tells me to slip a stitch sometimes so I'm confused. See below...
[COLOR="blue"]Cast on 87 (95, 107, 129) sts.Work in garter stitch (knit all
rows) for 8 rows. Next row (RS) Slip 1 st, k to end. Next row
(WS) Slip 1, k 5, p to last 6 sts, k 6. Repeat last 2 rows 7
times more.Work even in stockinette stitch for 3".[/COLOR]
I'm eager to start the project, but want to know if I should be slipping the stitch on every row or not. Thanks for the help!
