Slip stitches

My pattern begins some rows with slip stitches. It does not specify front or back. Can I assume knit stitches is yarn in pack and purl stitches is yarn in front?

I don’t see where you want me to put email address for notification.

Slip stitches

When you fill in the form during submission, it should ask for your email if you want to be notify. Maybe, there was a problem with it.

When I knit garter stitch, I slip the first stitch of the knit row knitwise and slip the first st of the purl row purlwise.
For the stockinette stitch, I slip the first stitch purlwise on each row and knit the last stitch every row.

Both methods will give nice looking chain edges.

Thanks for asking.
