How to Slip a Stitch Purlwise

Slip a stitch purlwise (or slip a stitch as if to purl).
This is typically the way you will be asked to slip stitches for things like heels of socks. BUT this is NOT how you slip stitches for an ssk (see slip a stitch knitwise for that).

Slipped stitches can be used to create patterns in one or more colors, are frequently used at the start of a row, and are used for double knitting.
