I’ve done a search on “slipped sts” …read everything. Looked at the link
Made sense. I was working a swatch last night…1 side looked just like the pic from the site. Nice chain. But the other side?? I don’t know why it doesn’t come out identical to the other. I has like lil bumps in between each selvedge st. For instance you see a “V” then the next St below it looks like it’s going sideways (right to left) <—> “bump”. Then a “supposed” selvedge V st and so on. GRR! :mad:
My nice side of selvedge sts look like a nice chain.
I did as the site said sl the first st of every row as if to purl. And knitted every last st. (Even on purl rows). Is this how you do it??
And the above happened. So I got irked :wall: with how that ONE side edge looked. Btw it’s on the RS that it looks like this…in other words when I begin the RS of the St st swatch. That side is EWW! :help:
I then decided to slip the 1st st on the RS (knits) knitwise…knit across, turn. Then on the WS slip purlwise, purl across…knit last st. Well…GRR…still looks the same on that one end. Other end nice!
Anyone else have this happen?? Why is it one side comes out great, the other …grr…well you know…
Btw…I’m starting an afghan and thought this would help with seaming. I’ve NEVER slipped the 1st st (only on socks). I just thought I should on this project being I’ll have quite a bit of seaming to do.
