Slip With Yarn On Right Side
Of Work (wyif, wyib)
1 Move the yarn to the front on a right-side row...
2 ... or to the back ona wrong-side row before slipping a stitch. This places the yarn on the right side of the fabric.
3 Not sure whether to slip purlwise or knitwise? Slip knitwise only if working decreases (SKP, SSK, S2KP2, etc.) or if instructed to “slip knitwise.” Otherwise, slip purlwise.
4 Not sure whether to slip a stitch with yarn in front of work (wyif) or with yarn in back of work (wyib)? Slip with yarn on wrong side of work unless instructed otherwise.
