Knitting Term and abbreviation - What is "slipw"?

Knitting term help.
What does "slipw" mean?


I've never seen this knitting term before in my entire knitting life. I think it's possible that this was a typo.

I came up with 2 knitting theories for this question;

1. It meant to write "slip pw" or slip purlwise.
2. It meant to write "slip kw" or slip knitwise.

Anybody else has suggestion or answer to this? Feel free to let us know. Thanks.
