    Love this stitch, and would like right slanting diagonal purl stitch also. Have in mind to knit a vest with the front sides slanting in to where the zipper will be. In other words slanting in each side to for a V at the center. Knitting bottom up. Can you help please.

      If you reverse all the instructions you’ll get a right slanting diagonal.
