I'm taking my 3rd knitting class. The project we were given is a sweater knit in the "Swiss Check" pattern. It involves using two different color yarns. I completed the ribbing with the main color last night. Now, I have to start knitting the body with the main color and the contrasting color. The Swiss Check pattern begins:
Row 1: With MC Purl (wrong side)
Row 2: With CC Slip 2 wyib, K1, slip 3 wyib
Repeat * to *, ending K1, slip 2
I can't imagine how to slip 2 stitches with a new skein of yarn. If the new skein has not been knit onto the needle, how can I slip any stitches?
