hi - so, i've never done fair isle before and thought i would give it a shot with this pattern for the design below. i wanted to go through the pattern to make sure i understood it before buying the yarn.
so, the pattern is knit in black (B) and white (W)
my first question is regarding the first row (yeah, i didn't get too far )
1st Row: (Wrong side) P1B., * pass B. wool to back, sl. 3 purlwise, bring B. wool to front, carrying it loosely across sts., PIB., repeat from * to end.
ok, so purl 1 st in black,
put the black yarn in the back,
then slip 3 in white purlwise ? <--- is that what it is saying? am i really slipping and not purling them?
