Pattern Question

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great start to the week! I just picked up my knitting needles after a year (I know :frowning: ) and I have a question about a hat pattern I am working on.

This is the line in question:

Row 6: k2, *k1, yo, k2, [B]sl1[/B], k2tog, [B]psso[/B], k2, yo, k2; rep from *, end k3 instead of k2

Now isn’t sl1 and psso the same thing? Or is it saying take the k2tog and take the sl1 and use it as the psso? I am confused as to what I am supposed to do with that part of the pattern. Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

Thanks!

No, they are not the same thing. PSSO is “pass slipped stitch over” so you are correct in saying that you use the sl1 as the one you use for psso the k2tog. :thumbsup:

sl1 and psso are often used together, psso is never used by itself. So in this pattern, slip 1, k2tog, then pass the slip st over the st that results from the k2tog.
