Slip stitch
To slip a stitch you literally pass it from one needle to the other rather than knitting it, i.e. is you 'slip' it from the left hand needle to the right.

Knitted fabric
Using a combination of the two basic stitches (knit and purl), you can create any of the following types of knitted fabric:

Rib stitch
The main thing to remember with ribbing is that knitted stitches are above knitted stitches and purled stitches are above purled stitches.

Vertical colour stripes
Basically you use what is called the 'intarsia' method of knitting to create these columns of colour, where you use separate balls (or bits of a ball) of yarn for each bit of colour required.
