Falling off the edge with Clapotis

Ok, I'm just confused with the Sl1 (slip one) on the first stitch of every row. Am I supposed to knit slip on knit slip rows? Purl slip on purl rows? Or Purl slip on every row?

Because I think the first stitch of my RIGHT sided rows looks wonky. I started out P Sl on P Rows and K Sl on K rows. Decided to switch to P SL on every row. The right-side of the right side of the piece just looks wonky no matter which way I slip on which row.

How are you doing this? I thought that you always purl slip unless directions stated otherwise. Which the Clapotis pattern does NOT. I'm so confused.

Please leave me a comment in the 'comment' button below if you can help.

That's the way the edge of my Clapotis looks too, and although I'm certainly no expert knitter, I *think* that's the way it's suppose to look. At least, so far as I can tell from your picture. Both edges are a little, er, bumpy, right? If they are, then I think you'll be more pleased with the way it looks the more progress you make.

As far as which way to slip the first stitch on RS rows, everyone who I've heard express an opinion about the matter says to slip it knitwise. That confused me, too (since you're generally suppose to slip purlwise if no way is specified)--but then, in this pattern, there *is* a lot of twisting of stitches involved.

Well, I know my help probably wasn't very helpful, so hopefully some more experienced Clapotis-ers will come along, too. :^)

I slipped mine knitwise on K rows, and purlwise on P rows. Seemed to work out fine for me.
