Can you cast off Purlwise?

Can you cast off Purlwise?

In a purled row, the stitches we have on our needle are purled as well. We are going to cast off the stitches in the same way: purling them. Purl 2 stitches, pass the second stitch onto the right-hand needle over the first letting it fall off the needle. You will have cast off one stitch.

Should you cast off Knitwise or Purlwise?

If your pattern tells you to bind off knitwise that means that you should use the knit stitch as you work the last row at the same time you finish off your knitting. The same applies if the pattern says purlwise, then you work the last row with purl stitches.

How do you SSK on purl side?

To work an ssk on the purl side, follow these steps:

  1. Slip the first stitch on the LH needle (as if to knit) to the RH needle.
  2. Do the same to the next stitch.
  3. Keeping the 2 slipped stitches facing in this direction, transfer them back to the LH needle.
  4. Purl the 2 stitches together through the back loops.

What is the purl equivalent of SSK?

slip, slip

Is SSK the same as k2tog?

The Knit 2 Together (k2tog) is a right slanting decrease: Knit 2 stitches together as if they were one stitch knitting through both loops. The Slip, Slip, Knit (ssk) is a left slanting decrease: Slip the first stitch as if to knit. Knit both stitches through the back loops together as if they were one stitch.

Is SSK the same as PSSO?

If there is one question I get all the time, it’s “Which left-leaning decrease should I use? I don’t understand the differences!” Some of you might even be surprised to learn that the ssk and the sl-k1-psso do the same thing!

Is SSK the same as k2tog TBL?

K2tog-tbl does not produce the same result as SSK: with k2tog-tbl the stitches get twisted (they don’t in the SSK). The two stitches do look different. And if you don’t like the ‘wiggly line’ that sits above a column of SSK decreases, work the stitch that sits above the decrease, in the even rows/rounds, tbl.
