Knitting Abbreviation: psso, or Pass Slip Stitch Over

by Dorothy on February 21, 2011

This is just a quickie to show what a psso or “Pass Slip Stitch Over” is. It’s a common abbreviation in knitting patterns and another way to decrease.

Note: The video indicates that you slip 1, knit 1, and then pass the first stitch over the second. When you “knit 1″ – you can also “purl 1″ as that is what is shown in the video is a purl. It depends on wha your pattern is calling for; a knit stitch or a purl stitch.
