How to decrease by slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over

In this DROPS video we show how to decrease by slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over (sl 1, K1, psso).

These abbreviations in the title means that you decrease 1 stitch by first slipping a stitch, then knitting a stitch, then passing the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
This will create a decrease leaning to the left. This method gives the exact same dec result as "ssk (slip, slip, knit)".

Our video is showing you how to "sl1, K1, psso" first in continental style, and then in US style knitting.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

Kan dere vise hva man skal gjøre når det står: Ta 1. m r løs av, ta 1 m r løs av, ta neste m r løs av, sett 2 m tilbake på venstre pinne og strikk de vridd sammen

Bonjour Dans le cas d'un Jersey torse ( toutes les mailles sont tricotées avec le brin arrière) comment faire la diminution ? J'ai vu que vous parlez dans une vidéo du SSK( Glisse glisse tricote) mais cela est pour du jersey normal Alors comment faire pour le jersey endroit torse Merci

DROPS Design answered:

Bonjour Mme Jacquelin, vous devrez à priori procéder de la même façon, mais en prenant vos mailles torse à chaque fois, ainsi, elles seront toujours tricotées de la même façon: glissez 1 m comme pour la tricoter torse à l'endroit, tricotez 1 m torse à l'endroit et passez la m glissée par-dessus la maille tricotée. N'hésitez pas à vous entrainer sur un échantillon si besoin. Bon tricot!

Pattern - Sky so blue. I'm doing the decrease for armholes. The instructions say reduce 1 stitch on each side x11 using decrease tip 2. Do I have to decrease only on the right side? Or do I also need to decrease on the wrong side?

03.08.2022 - 10:38

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Natasha, in this pattern the decreases for armholes are worked on every row from right side, so that you will only decrease from RS and work the next row from WS without decreasing. Happy knitting!

Just wondering if you could also do this as a step-by-step with photos because I do best with those and not that well with videos only or text only. Every other tutorial either doesn't have photos or, like yours, is strictly video-only.

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Melissa, we don't make custom tutorials or videos. We are trying to cover as many techniques as possible with our tutorials. You can put the subtitles in the video to check the step by step instructions on the video.

Hi I would like to know if I can use this technique with a knitting loom instead of needles

20.12.2018 - 04:24

DROPS Design answered:

Dear Mrs Belanger, we are unfortunately not experimented with knitting loom, but maybe you could just have a try. Do not hesitate to request assistance from the store where you bought the yarn or any knitting loom forum. Happy knitting!

Jag har ett mönster där det står "lyft 2 maskor rätt på en gång, 1 rm, drag de lyfta m över", är det samma som detta fast med två maskor istället för 1? (Är en ifylld triangel i diagrammet.)

12.08.2017 - 21:38

DROPS Design answered:

Jo, det är samma sak, bara att du istället lyfter 2 maskor och sedan drar dessa 2 maskor över den stickade maskan.

Hvorfor bruker man egentlig denne teknikken ved minsking av masker? Kan skjønne om det er pga effekten det gir, men syntes det ser så rart ut på arbeid på rundpinne.

14.01.2016 - 11:40

DROPS Design answered:

Hej Beate, Jo men det er pga effekten at man bruger forskellige teknikker til at tage både ind og ud. Find den teknik du synes bedst om.

Comment faire 5 diminutions pour une emmanchure raglan avec une aiguille circulaire Merci de me répondre ou de me dire où je peux trouver une vidéo qui m'explique ce système.

Bonjour Mme Wolff, cette vidéo montre comment diminuer pour le raglan - avant de commencer le raglan, on rabat les mailles des emmanchures (même méthode en rond que sur aig. droites). Bon tricot!

Question sur les diminutions : Pour quel travail, faut-il préférer cette méthode de "diminution – surjet simple" à la "diminution - deux mailles tricotées ensemble" ? Merci pour vos vidéos. Cordialement, V.B.

09.09.2014 - 14:51

DROPS Design answered:

Bonjour Violette B. Cette diminution (surjet simple) incline les mailles vers la gauche alors que 2 m ens à l'end les incline vers la droite. Vous pouvez utiliser l'une ou l'autre méthode en fonction du résultat que vous voulez obtenir (diminutions plus ou moins visibles). Bon tricot!

Ramona: Si deslizás el punto pasándolo directamente a la aguja derecha, se va a torcer cuando luego lo pases por encima. Si lo deslizás por la parte izquierda del punto (como si lo fueras a tejer de derecho), se ve mejor. Probá para ver la diferencia!
