Slip Stitch

I am trying to figure out how to slip a stitch. It seems like a simple enough task, slip one loop from the left needle to the right without knitting. Then continue knitting or purling. But when I continue, my loop on the right needle comes undone. What am I doing wrong?? :slight_smile:

Good question–that’s one I haven’t heard before. :teehee: Any chance you can post a photo?

I am a relatively new knitter and had the same problem, by trial and error I found I could eliminate the problem by slipping the stitch purlwise. The pattern looked exactly like the closeup picture so I figure I have it solved. :doh:
