Please! yo sk2p2 ???
I have done pass slipped stitch over, but this sequence makes no sense to me, its in the custom knits book (wendy bernard) page 101 the mesh coverup. Thank you so much!

The yo is separate - wrap the yarn around the needle for it, slip the next st, knit 2 tog, and pass the slip sts over it. You can keep a finger on the YO so you don't accidentally pass the YO st over.

Why p2 if you only pass the one slipped stitch over? Humm.

thank you. I tried it and I keep ending up with less stitches, so I'm doing something wrong. when you pass the slipped stitch over, you pass it over and off the needle right?

That's not a p2 Merigold - slip 2, k1 pass 2 slip sts over.

Violet Storm, you're supposed to end up with less stitches, you do pass both slip sts over the k1. The YO adds a st and the s2kp loses 2 so you end up with one less.

I don't really understand that either. It it was s2k2p2 I think that would make sense to me, or if it was sk2p it would make sense.

Usually books will give instructions for the stitches that aren't common, is there nothing in the back or front of the book, or at the beginning of the pattern?

I think I misread this - it's slip 1, k2sts, the pass the one slip st over the 2 knit sts. It's a decrease, but the YO in front of it adds one, so you come out with the same number.

That abbreviation stumped me recently when I was doing the Tree of Life afghan... but it's a double decrease... yeah, it took me a few minutes to get it, but now it makes perfect sense to me.

It isn't a double dec though... I mistakenly read it a s2kp2 which is a double dec. It's a single one - sl 1, k2 (not tog) pass the slip st over the 2 k sts.

I agree with what trvvn5 said. This sure doesn't sound like any standard way to write out 'whatever' it is they want you to do and there should be somewhere in the book that they tell you what they mean.

I've never heard of slipping one, knitting 2 and then slipping the one slipped stitch over the 2 knits (not that that may not be exactly what they want). And why would they write it out that way, unless they told you somewhere what they meant? That is in no book I have.

Sue, you may be right, (I've learned that you are a little psychic when it comes to knitting ) but I've only seen sk2p and that means sl 1, K2tog as you said before and psso, and then the p2 doesn't follow because it seems that would mean pass the 2 slipped stitches over and there there were not 2 slipped stitches to begin with.

If that book doesn't tell somewhere what they mean, it is not a very good book.

VioletStorm, how are you coming with this? How many stitches do you start out with and how many are you supposed to end up with? If you give us the instructions for the whole row maybe we could see how the numbers work out better. Maybe you found the spot in the book where it explains it when you looked in the spots trvvn5 suggested. Let us know how it comes out.
