How to SKPO – Slip One, Knit One, Pass the Slipped Stitch Over

Confused? It’s a bit of a tongue twister but it very straight forward to do. This creates a decrease with a slight left lean. Insert the right needle into the first stitch on the left needle as if you are going to knit it. Instead of wrapping the yarn around the right needle, simply slip the stitch from the left needle onto the right needle. Knit the next stitch on the left hand needle as normal. Insert the left needle into the second stitch on the right needle, lift it up and over the first stitch and drop it off the end of the right needle. All done!
