Translation: Pattern for sock heel 2
So the heel of my first-ever sock is going well, and I'm moving on to the heel cap. Again, the pattern lingo has me stumped. :-)

The pattern is from Lang Yarns (CH-6260 Reiden). It says:

Sloped Heel Cap
Next row (RS): From the center out, k2, SKP (sl 1, k1, psso), k1, turn.
Next row (WS): SL 1 purlwise, p5 (= 2 sts past the center), p2tog, p1, turn.
Next row: Sl 1 knitwise, k to within 1 st of turning gap, SKP, k1 turn.
Next row: So 1 purlwise, p to within 1 st of turning gap, p2tog, p1, turn.
Rep last 2 rows until half the amount of heel sts are reached in the center (28:2 = 14 sts) Rep last 2 rows, but discontinue decs at end of each row. After all sts have been worked each side, work to the centre of the next RS row = end of heel cap.

So... I don't know what "psso" means, or "p2tog", or "knitwise" and "purlwise." I'm guessing RS means Reverse side and WS means Work side?

psso = pass slipped stitch over. You will slip a stitch, knit the next stitch and then pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (a decrease)

p2tog = purl 2 together. Purl the next 2 stitches together as one.

knitwise, purlwise = when you slip knitwise insert your needle as if to knit then slip. To slip purlwise insert your needle as if you were going to purl the stitch and slip it.

RS= right side (this is the side that you will see)

WS = wrong side (this is the back of the work)
