CONFUSED Please help!
Im working on a pattern that has some foreign abbr in it...could you please tell me the differnce in them ?

Im using 101/2 dbl point needles and this is how pattern reads:

1. K1, SK1, K1 PSSO, K5

2. K1, S1k, K1 PSSO, K7, K2tog, K1

These are rows that I am stuck on because I dont understand what it means by the two differnt SK1 and S1K. I could not find these abbr anywhere on your site...your information on the web site is my bible. I love all the info you have provided. It has allowed me to be self taught. Which I will always treasure. Please help. Thank you.

Sometimes patterns will contain a little section that explains abbreviations, especially if they're unusual. If it does, I think it's usually somewhere near the beginning, like after the gauge.

Hm. Well, I was thinking that S1K might be slip 1 knit-wise, but I'm not sure what SK1 could be... putting a link to the pattern might be helpful.

The Pattern
Okay heres a link to the pattern, I got it from Knit Pattern Central.com
you go to Mittens and gloves in the free pattern directory, and it is called "Ice Scraper Mitts".

http://born2knit.blogspot.com/2005/1...per-mitts.html

It offers mens or womens, and the abbr are in both patterns. Please have a peek and see what you think.

That's a neat idea for a pattern. Unfortunately, I'm still not sure what those abbreviations mean. Hopefully someone with more experience will be able to look at the pattern and figure it out. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Thanks Anyway
I appreciate your trying... Do you think if S1k is Slip 1 knit wise, could the other SK1 mean skip 1?

Yes, S1K is slip one knitwise. You're doing a slip one, knit one, pass slipped stitch over.

Okay, so it's been established that S1K is indeed slip one knit-wise, but SK1 is what now? Just slip one, as in purl-wise?
