slip 1 wyif question

I have a pattern that says to p1 then sl 1 wyif. Am I to assume that I go through the back when I sl 1?

Slip 1 wyif means that you have the yarn in front of the work and slip one stitch from the left needle to the right needle purlwise without working the stitch.

Just curious. What are the next couple of stitches immediately following p1, sl 1 wyif?

thank you so much. :slight_smile: I did it wrong but now i know!

It does the p1 sl 1 wyif repeat for the entire round and then the next round is all knit.

That’s perfect. If the slip one is part of a decrease you would slip knitwise. Since this slip on isn’t followed by a decrease, slipping purlwise, as Metylda said is spot on.
