Pattern Instruction for hat
I'm trying to knit a baby hat on a straight needle but I ran into a snag. The pattern said P2 *SL1, K2, PSSO, P2 easy enough and the I started thinking about it too much, is there a general rule that you follow each step b/c what I started thinking was after P2 my working thread was to the front, do I SL1 first and then move the string to the back for K2 or do I do it before? And one more on PSSO for this pattern I PSSO over the K2 not just one? Any help would be appreciated.
