    Sl1 - Knitwise or Purlwise

    My understanding (which could be entirely incorrect) is that Slip 1 (Sl1) means slip the next stitch on the left needle to the right needle knitwise unless noted. I did some lace rows on a shawl that way and it came out great.

    Then, I was looking at some instructions where they had a knitting abbreviation key that defined Sl1 as slip purlwise unless noted.

    What is the proper way to Sl1 if not noted in the pattern?

    I thought it was slip it purlwise. Moving it purlwise does not change the stitch's orientation, knitwise twists it.

    I've always understood that you were supposed to slip stitched purlwise unless otherwise noted. Like

    lovestostitch said, slipping knitwise twists the stitch, and slipping purlwise doesn't.

      This is my experience with patterns.
      If you are making a ssk decrease (like in most lace patterns ) the stitch is slipped knitwise.
      If it is only a slip stitch and not part of a decrease, then you should slip it purlwise with yarn in back. unless otherwise noted.

        Thank you everyone! I have been doing it wrong but at least my lace portion came out nice anyway. Hey, maybe I made up a new lace - highly doubtful but a girl could wish! 🤭
