p2sso?
I was wondering if anyone could confirm a p2sso for me?

I know psso means "slip one, knit one, pass slipped stitch over" so does that mean that in the p2sso I slip one, knit 2 and pass the slipped stitch over the 2 knitted stitches?

It's in a pattern for a lacy baby blanket which used to be posted on www.revolutionyarn.com/bbperisparasol.html but apperently that entire site no longer exists.
I only copied the instructions so if there used to be a picture with it which may explain more, I don't have it.

I can copy the rest of the instructions if that would help...

thanks in advance!

p2sso = pass two slipped stitches over

Slip two stitches together as if to knit, knit one, pass the two over the one you knit. It's a double decrease.

aahhh, just opposite from what I thought then, I'm glad I asked first before experimenting: this pattern is a pain to have to tink and I've had to do it more than once already as it is ...

Now I'll be good to continue on this pattern tomorrow, thank you

I would also add that you should be sure to slip the 2 stitches together as if you were going to k2tog not individually.

When you pass the two slipped stitches over, do you do them one at a time or both at the same time or does it matter?

It shouldn't be too hard to do them together. For this pattern the one that's the middle of the three (the 2nd st you slipped that's at the tip of the R needle) should be the one that's on top of the others because of the pattern effect. Otherwise you would have slipped 1, k2tog and passed one over.

Hi MrsJSD,

Do you mean the kitty in my signature, playing with the ball?

Click on it with your right mouse button and select "save image as..." or whatever the exact English wording for it will be. Then save it to the directory on your computer where you want to store it and click "save"

If you want to add it to your own signature, you should put it online somewhere: I usually use photobucket.com for things like that.
When you've uploaded it there, you can make a link to it to have it show up in your signature or anywhere else where you'd want to have it.


That's it in a nuttshell; if you need more help, please feel free to ask!

I passed them over together, and in this case it worked just fine.

Although I think that when I slip them together as if to k2tog, the slipped stitch closest to the tip of the needle is actually going to be the bottom one of the two once you slip them over?

I've put this work down for now because 2 other projects have deadlines, but when I get to back to it in a week or so, I will pay extra attention to this part of the pattern to see what exactly happens when I knit the p2sso's.
