PSSO is the abbreviation for “pass slip stitch over”. It is a common decrease and can be found in many lace patterns. Using the left needle tip, simply lift a slip stitch on the right hand needle over the following stitch(es) and remove it from the needle. A decrease and a lovely design element have been created!
Watch the following video to see several variations of the psso demonstrated.

    Just want to thank you for these instructional videos! I started knitting last summer and was very discouraged until I discovered websites offering tutorials. My other knitting instructor is teaching a crochet series now….which I already know. So that’s how I came across you. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

    I have tried to watch this video, it does not appear on the page. I have watched other videos. Is there a problem?
