When I work on my buttonhole row I’m instructed to slip the first stitch (I assume purlwise). I can never get it to look nice. The place where I slipped the stitch sticks out like a sore thumb. I then tried slipping the stitch with the working yarn held BEHIND, the way you do it when making a slip selvedge edge (purlwise). I think it looks kind of better. Does anyone do it this way?
EDITED TO ADD: I had a look at a Youtube video from “Very Pink Knits”, and she explains that the default way to slip a stitch purlwise is indeed with the yarn in the back.
