And we’re back to the decreases! Today we’re going to cover my favorite left-slanting decrease, skp, which is sometimes abbreviated sl1, k1, psso. (Yes, in true knitting-nerd fashion, I have a favorite decrease.) Like many things in knitting, the abbreviation tells you exactly what to do: knit one, slip one, pass slipped stitch over. Here’s a little more detail:
Step One: Slip the next stitch from your left-hand needle to your right-hand needle. I slip the stitch purlwise.
Step Two: Knit the next stitch on the left-hand needle.
