S1 work 2 together PSSO in a single rib beanie
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.
