Knit in back of stitch

I found this free pattern on the internet (see below).
I don’t know how to do row 1 as far as where it states “psso but before dropping the slipped stitch from the left needle, knit into the back of it”

I know what psso is (Pass Slipped Stitch Over) but I don’t know how to KNIT INTO THE BACK OF IT???

HELP!!! :doh:

Normally we knit into the front of the stitch–the ‘leg’ of the loop that’s nearest to us on the needle. The back is the ‘leg’ that goes behind the needle. Just insert your needle into the back loop from right to left and knit it.
