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?
