S1 work 2 together PSSO in a single rib beanie

by Cynthia
(Melbourne, Australia)


I hope you can help please. I have the following instructions from an old Patons pattern 1239: P1, *S1 work 2tog, PSSO, rib 28 then repeat from * on a single rib beanie with 157 stitches . I have tried having the slip stitch work with wool behind as if to knit and then knit the next 2 stitches together and then do the PSSO. I have ended up with inconsistent decreases and some holes. At some points should I be slipping the stitch with the yarn in front if, keeping with the rib pattern,, it should have been a purl stitch? Should I always knit the 2 together or follow what the first stitch of the pattern should be? It changes what the start stitch would be. This is really confusing me! I hope you can understand my question.

crown shaping for single rib beanie

Hello Cynthia,

You're right about changing the way of decrease. I knitted example for me so that I could understand it better. Here is what I've found.

With the first decrease of the first row it worked fine with doing slip knit wise, k2tog and passover. The rib pattern was maintained perfect for 28 sts. Then came the 2nd decrease. This time the decrease started with p stitch. So, I changed to slip it purl wise with yarn in front and then purl the 2 together and passover. This worked perfectly with ribbing pattern.

In conclusion,
You should do slip knit wise, k2tog, passover when you work with k-p-k stitches. And do slip purlwise (with yarn in front), p2tog, passover when working with p-k-p stitches.

Thank you for sending in your question. Have a great day!

Ratcha
