skip 1 ?
looking at a new mitten pattern, and after I cast on (using dps), and join together, the first row instructs me to:

Row 1: purl 1, skip 1 for one round.
Row 2: skip 1, purl 1 for one round.
Row 3: purl 1, slip 1 for one round.

Is a skip 1 the same as a slip 1?

Thanks to anyone who can help me...

Do you have a picture of the mittens or a link to the pattern? It might help to see what the mittens look like.

As far as I know, a "skip" and a "slip" are 2 different things. If I'm not mistaken a "skip" works out to a decrease. You purl a stitch and instead of putting your right hand needle into the very next stitch on the left hand needle, you go over that and into the stitch after that one.

A "slip" is when you pass the stitch from the left hand needle onto the right hand needle (as if you were going to purl it) without working it and then you purl the next stitch.

Thank you for your reply... I just purchased the pattern of Icelandic Mittens off of ETSY, from finnishweaver, so I don't have a photo that I could share. Hmmm, if I think I understand -- so I purl 1, go over the next stc (which would have been a K1), purl, go over next etc.

? still remains -- won't I wind up dropping the stitch that I've skipped over? I'll play around with it, and maybe wind up answering the question... Thank you again!

I would email finnishweaver, it would be an easy "typo" to make. Is there a stitch guide with the pattern ?

Now that I think about it, whenever I've seen a skip 1 in a pattern, something else was done to the skipped stitch before moving on. Sometimes it's slipped over the next stitch or you go back and work it after you work the next stitch, but it's never left unworked.

I would think there should be a stitch definition to clarify or that it's a typo. But somehow a round of p1 slip1 followed by a round of slip 1 p1 doesn't make sense to me either. I'd have to see what the mittens look like.

If I can't find the skip 1 stitch definition anywhere, I'll get in touch with the pattern's designer... Thanks so much for helping...

I agree, I'll try to find a stitch definition, and if I can't find one, will contact finnishweaver. Thanks again...

I looked in the glossary of common abbreviations and it includes some of videos on this site. It does show Skip (sk)it shows it as slip1, knit 2 tog, pass slipped stitch over. (a double decrease)

Hope this helps

Where do you see that? It shows --
sk skip
sk2p slip1, knit 2 tog, pass slipped stitch over. (a double dec)
SKP aka skpo "Slip, Knit, Pass." Slip a stitch, knit the next stitch, pass the slipped stitch over the knit one. The same as: sl1, k1, psso

These are all separate terms.

As far as I know the only time you 'skip' a stitch is in a chart that shows 'no stitch' where you really skip the box and go on to the next box for the next stitch.

I'm inclined to think it's a typo as the k and l are next to each other. Slip sts are used in knitting a row as in k1, sl 1, repeat.
