hi everyone i'm new to knitting, i know how to crochet but mostly make my own stuff and don't use a pattern. so recently i've decited it would be nice to learn to knit. so i'm started a retelivly easy pattern for "two needle mittens" the only probablem is that in a couple of parts of the patterns it says " work even in SS untill piece measures..........." I can't figure out what that means, I"m thinking it stands for Single Stitch? when i looked up knitting abreaviations all i can find is slipped stitch, but that doesn't make sence to me, eather i don't clearly know what a slipped stitch is preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'or...................')HuhHuhHuh? I just don't know if someone could please help me out that would be sooo great. i would really apreashiate it. here is the link to the pattern i'm using if that helps anyone in figuring out how to help me lol. thanks again to anyone who replys. http://www.allfreecrafts.com/knitting/two-needle-mitts.shtml

It looks like it means "stocking stitch" - or knitting so that all the stitches look the same on one side. For example, on the hand, you would knit across the odd numbered rows, turn, then purl across the even numbered rows.  Smiley

It's usually abbreviated 'st st' rather than SS, so it's not a standard term.
