*sl 1, k2, psso, p2* (do not knit 2 together)
Does this mean:
slip one, knit two, then pass the slipped stitch over both of the knitted stitches and then purl 2?

This is the first row of a section of mock cabling. The second row goes like this: p1, yo, p1, k2.

Then there are two rows of ribbing.

Thanks. Hopefully someone can help me figure this out so I can go to bed!

Yes, I would pass the slipped stitch over both knitted stitches.

I think I'm still confused. This is a pattern for a baby hat. You do a few inches of ribbing and then comes this "mock cabling." This is the pattern:
http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patt...ckcablehat.htm In the cabling section:
1) Will the slipped stitch really be stretchy enough to pass over two stitches?
2) There's a yarn-over in second row. If there's no decreasing in other rows for the next 5", isn't this hat going to be some inverted cone-head shape, ala' Saturday Night Live skits?
:thinking:

The slipped stitch will fit over easily.

The yo in the next row makes up for the psso in the first row.

No cone head!

Aaaahhh....so when you slip the stitch over the other two stitches, it (the slipped stitch) sort of falls off -- in this case making kind of a twist in the pattern.

Thank you both for answering. And Ingrid, I love your image.

It's an excellent likeness, if I do say so myself!

THANK YOU! I have a pattern with the same instructions and have been going bonkers trying to figure it out. You asked every question I had!
