I am helping our neighborhood library start a new knitting group. The group meets informally. I was requested to try out a pattern to possibly teach to other members of the group - however, there are 2 abbreviations I can't find info on to learn how to do.
Can anyone help me with understanding WSD P2TOG - wrong side decrease I have figured out, but what is the other part? and how do I complete this? and What is PSSO?
Please, if anyone can help, I need to have this project, which is small, completed by September 12.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

P2Tog = purl 2 together

PSSO = pass slipped stitch over

WSD is likely wrong side decrease. P2tog is purl two together.

PSSO is 'pass slipped stitch over' That usually follows slip one, knit one, pass the one you slipped over the one you knit.

Check out the Glossary tab above for abbreviations and videos of many of them.

Also the decrease section will have both.

PSSO - Pass Slip Stitch Over
P2tog - Purl 2 together

Look at this glossary page and you can see the abbreviations and there is a video on how to do it.

Sometimes the videos don't work so here's some more help.

Thanks to all for your quick responses!

I tried the glossary page, everyone, sorry my pc is old and the page just comes up as either "timed out" or a "page not found error" *sigh* Someday I will be able to buy a newer pc with a better processor, but right now I can't.

If you are doing thisat a Public Lybrary, they shoud have puters with internet capability, and since you are working WITH them, you should be allowed to print out ONE page (or a few) to help with this group

I completed it, ecb, and I am not completing this AT the library, but at home.

I am able to print from the library yes, but I generally don't use their pc's for they only have 6 and as I have my own at home, with internet, and they are in high demand, I tend to leave them for those who have no pc or internet to use.

I was completing this project to teach to the group - not with the group at this time. It was a request that I try. I am one of the group coordinators which I volunteered for, but I am the only "beginner" knitter of the four coordinators.

I hope that clarifies a little. You can view the finished star :

Well that's great that you leave the library computer's for people who don't otherwise have access. But since yours is slow, theirs are nice and fast, it would n't take much time at all to load and print out that page so other people could use the PCs.
