Learn To Knit

K1, Sl1, PSSO (knit one, slip one, pass slipped stitch over)

Since this is all worked in one sequence, you may see it written as k1-sl1-psso or some variation. It is not commonly used.

Do not confuse this with sl1, k1, psso which is more prevalent.

Knit a stitch in the normal way.

slip as if to knit

Now slip the next stitch as if to knit.

Transfer the slipped stitch, then the knit stitch back to the left needle, making sure they are twisted (note the different order!).

Pass the slipped stitch over the knit stitch and off the needle.

slip as if to purl

Slip the knit stitch from the left to the right needle as if to purl.

Make certain you slip the stitches correctly.

This decrease slants to the right on the right side of the knitting.
