  • What is psso? It does not explain that in the abbreviations.

  • Sorry this is off the beaten path but are there any patterns for children mittens on the sock loom 2? I would love to make some for winter for charities. Sue Kreitzer

  • Hello so in reading the pattern, the knits are the alternate to the purl and not a ewrap. Am I right?

  • correct

  • As of right now, we don’t have any children mitt patterns. We will work on that for the upcoming winter. Thank you for the suggestion.

  • Pass over the skipped stitch
