I am working on a sleevless shirt for my sister and after doing the first 4 rounds the next row for the Pattern rows is this
Row 1: (rs) K1, yo, k5,sk2p, k5,yo

The previous row was a knit row. My question is what is sk2p mean? I'm sure it's skip 2 purls but where are the purls and where do I put them?

Hi Nascargranny, I use this a lot in knitting...It means slip first stitch from left needle to right, then knit the next two together on to the right needle and pass the slipped stitch over the two knitted stitches. It's a double decrease. No purling involved. Did I make it clear for you...
Best wishes,

I kind of understand that. I am slipping the first stitch to the other needle then knitting 2 tog. How do I pass the slipped stitch over? Is is putting it back over to the first needle it was originally at? And is this row what makes the holes in the pattern? I don't know if I can show the pattern or not with copyright laws. It's such a cute top.
And no, there are no explanations for the abbrv.

Isn't there anywhere on the pattern that explains the abbreviations?

Yes that helps alot and makes sense now. Thank you. It's kind of like binding off right? And then that would make the holes.

The YO, or yarn over, is what makes the holes. To do a yarn over properly, you wind the yarn around the needle in the exact same way you wind it around to make a knit stitch. Except you haven't put your right hand needle into anything first. Hope that helps.

I am working on a pattern that I think does the same thing only the directions are Sl1K, K2tog, psso This is easy to understand. I have not run into sk2p before. Good to know if I ever come across it
