slip 1 stitch knitwise
Sl1 simply means to slip 1 stitch as if to knit.
Let’s get started - simply insert your right needle into the next stitch, as if to knit. Instead of knitting we simply slip this stitch off of the left needle and keep it on our right needle, like this. You’ve now slipped a stitch without working it.
