I’m starting a cowl & cable poncho by Knit One, Crochet Too, Inc., the pattern starts as:
Row 1: K1,p1,rep from to center…
Row 2: knit the knit st and purl the purl st
Row 3: P1, *SR,p2,RBC,p2,TR,p2…
Row 4: rep row 2
Continue in this manner… [I](which I take to mean follow the established patterns)[/I]
SR= slipped rib
worked over 1 st, 2-row repeat
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Sl 1 w/ yarn in front
My question is about Row 4. If I knit all knit st and purl all the purl st, why would they even have the Slipped Rib as part of the pattern? Do I slip the stitch purlwise instead of purl it for this row?
Any help would be appreciated.
