We need your input…
There is division among us…
Line 1 of the March pattern Pickadilly says this;
“work back and forth in 1×1 rib, slipping the first stitch of each row”
How do you interpret that?  Would you slip the first stitch and then start with the K1, P1 OR would you slip the first stitch and start with the P1.


March begins

I have already started…and I doubt I will start over if you think differently than me, but I am curious about your answers!
Let the debate begin!

    I would probably slip the first one and then P1, but I don’t think it will affect anything to do it the other way — the only thing that matters is that it is the same on each row, right?

  2. Pam says:

    I agree with Nadia, as long as the rows are consistent.

  3. Kris C says:

    I would slip 1 then P1. Either way would probably work… I don’t think it would look wrong to do it the other way. With a 1 x 1 ribbing, the purl stitches hardly show (if that makes sense!).

  4. Dusty says:

    I would slip in pattern unless it specifically states that there is a selvedge stitch.

  5. Michelle says:

    After reading a bunch of stuff online, I ended up slipping and then starting my k1, p1 pattern, which then ended each row with a knit stitch. It said somewhere that you wanted to end with a knit to have a nice edge…which I think is the selvedge edge. I don’t know if it’s right…but like you said, I’m not ripping it out now! The crochet edging will be sewn to the edge all the way up, so it probably doesn’t matter on this one what the edge looks like.

  6. Linda says:

    I agree with the “slip one then start the pattern” crowd. I find it makes a more stable edge and it is easier to find the place to do the “pick up” when adding the edge.

    I would slip then start the k1 p1. 🙂
