Your question: How do you knit SKPO?

What does SKPO mean in knitting?

Step by step. Slip, knit, pass over (SKPO) is a left leaning decrease. To make an SKPO, slip the first stitch onto the right-hand needle without knitting it. Knit the next stitch. Using the left-hand needle, pick up the first stitch and pass it over the stitch you just knit.

Is SKPO the same as SSK?

A SKPO looks the same however you slip the stitches. SSK needs to be done properly (stitches slipped knitwise) if you want a clean-looking stitch that mirrors the K2tog panel on the other side.

What does Sk2po mean in knitting?

Sk2po (slip 1, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over) is a double decrease, decreasing your total number of stitches by two.

What does knit 2 together mean?

Knit two together is the most basic method of decreasing stitches. It makes a decrease that slants slightly to the right and is often abbreviated as K2Tog or k2tog in patterns. To “knit two together” is just like making a regular knit stitch, but you work through two stitches instead of just one.

How is SSK different from K2tog?

The difference is that in SSK the two stitches are in the same order as before, while in K2tog they have swapped places (left to right).

How do I make SSK neat?
