Does "sm" stand for "slip marker"?
I'm kitting a shawl it says row 5- k2, yo, k to marker, yo, sm, k1, sm, yo, k to the last 2 sts, yo, knit 2.
O.k. On row 7 it states to repeat rows 5 and 6.
My question is how can I slip the markers, when I removed the fist time I did row 5.
Thank you so muchAnswer
Yes, "sm" or "sl m" stand for "slip marker". You do this by simply remove a stitch marker from your left hand needle and place it on your right hand needle (for right-handed knitter). Markers help keep track of important areas where changes occur so that we don't loose track or get confused.
You said, you removed the marker at row 5. Did you take it off the needle completely? If so, you can just place it back where it belongs on your next row (after the 2nd yarn over before the center k1).
I hope this helps. Thanks for submitting your question and visiting!
Have a great day,
