Slip one purlwise

If in a row where all of my stitches are knit, the pattern says to slip one purlwise, does this mean I should bring the yarn to the front and then slip the stitch? Or should I leave the yarn in the back, but still insert my needle as if I were to purl? I just want to be sure.

Thanks!

Leave your yarn in back and insert the needle as if you wer3e purling it. :wink:

Slipping knitwise or purlwise refers to how you insert the right needle to move the stitch, the yarn always stays in back unless the pattern says otherwise.
