Hi from beautiful Montana. I have been reading the daily newsletter and enjoy seeing the projects, comments, and challenges. I have a question What does skp mean? Is it slip, knit,pass? It is being used in a decrease in this particular pattern.

Some patterns call for skpsso = slip, knit, pass slipped stitch over. There doesn't seem to be a standard on this one.
when i was young, this was usually written as sl1, k1, psso....but as with everything, this has changed...in addition, the st is often replaced with the newer ssk, (sl as if to knit, sl as if to knit, knit together) they both produce a left leaning decrease, but i like the old one and use it...

I have to agree with you, this can get very confussing especially if you are new at knitting. I have patterns where it is used in all ways mentioned here. I really wish they would pick one and stick with it.
