Pattern Says: Slip, Knit, Pull (SKP): slip 1 stitch to the right needle as to knit, knit the following stitch, pull the 2nd stitch through the 1st. Is this just different wording for pass slipped stitch over the knitted 2d stitch? Thanks for your help. I've just picked up my knitting needles again after a few years and don't want to get too frustrated right away.

yes, it seems to be, but i have never seen it written that way.

Are you making the grocery bag?

The pattern is from a Belgium blog and therefore the words are a little different than those used in US. Since they mention the UK needle sizes and metric measurements, I'm sure it is just another way of writing SKP for slip, knit, pass slip stitch over. Great bag, by the way.

Yes, it is. I teach it both ways, because pulling it through seems easier for some folks. I, too, have never seen that in print. Interesting. Wouldn't it be nice if all the instructions were consistent?

Thanks so much for the info. You're very good - yes, I am making the green grocery bag. I must say I never considered the fact that the directions might be from a European source as I lived in Europe and Asia for many years and most, if not all, my needles are UK/metric and if pattern directions are only US, I have to look up the needle size.

Passding the stitch OVER puts a long stitch in its' place. PULLING it through, hides it. Try an experiment to see the difference!

I agree--it sounds completely different than passing the stitch over & would give a totally different texture. While both would accomplish the same thing, there may be a reason its written this way--maybe makes the bag stronger?
