Has anyone ever heard of the knitting term "SMd" used in a decrease row.

Never heard of it but it'll be interesting to find out what it is.

Could it mean slip marker decrease as in decrease after you slip the marker.

examine the pattern..... often abbreviations are somewhere obscure.

There’s and SMD knitting site but I haven’t been able to find it as a term. Maybe it means “slip marker then do the decrease”?

There is nothing listed for that term on the yarn council knitting term list, but there is a SMD knitting group. Perhaps it relates to that?

That was my first thought too.

What's the context? What pattern are you using? Could you possibly provide a link to it? If it's a paid pattern looking at a photo can help and you can post the line of instructions where it is. SMd could be a typo, it could be an actual thing to do and should be defined in the pattern. Without more info we can all provide guesses but no answers.

In my case it could mean, "Silly me, did (it again)"

Guess - Slip marker, decrease. Is there a legend hiding somewhere in the pattern?

Seeing exactly how that is used in the pattern might make it clear. It could also be a typo and really mean SM go slip marker.
