I'm trying to decipher these stitch abbreviations / instructions glove pattern: http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/11/endpaper_mitts.html
sl1 wyib: slip 1 stitch as if to purl, holding working yarn behind stitch;
sl1 wyif: slip 1 stitch as if to purl, holding working yarn in front of stitch;
Does the reference to holding yarn behind stitch vs in front of stitch refer to where yarn is before i slip the stitch? does holding "behind stitch" mean putting yarn in place it would be "as if" i were going to knit it and holding "in front" mean putting yarn in place it would be "as if" i were going to purl? or the opposite way? Very confused.
The patterns for example then uses stitches in pattern like this:
Row 1: *k1, sl1wyif, repeat from * to end
and later for example:
Set-up Round 1: *k1, sl1wyif, repeat from * to end of round.
Set-up Round 2: *sl1wyib, p1, repeat from * to end of round.
Thanks anyone for help on this
