I’m making a shrug which requires a mock rib stitch for the body. The pattern for the mock rib is given as: (RS) K1P1 across. WS) P1, SL1YF across.
My “interpretaton” of the [B]SL1YF[/B] and the (WS) row is as follows: I purl the first stitch - slip the next stitch as if to purl - then purl the next stitch.
First of…can anyone explain the need [U]to say [/U]YF (yarn forward) since it’s already forward due to the first purl stitch? Perhaps I’m thinking too logically! :think:
That’s how I’ve been knitting my mock rib and it certainly doesn’t resemble this lovely stitch pattern. :tap: Can anyone tell me what I’m looking at (with envy) and better yet, explain how to do it?
As always, many thanks.
