So I got an email back from Grace Mcewen : )  She was really nice!

It turns out that it's supposed to be assumed that sl2 k1 psso uses a purlwise slip.  I had originally thought that was probably how you did it, but was unsure because I was always taught that if the stitch/pattern doesn't specify, you always slip knitwise.

Thus the redundancy thing.. Then last night I was surfing around in between our emails and found "The Knitting Fiend" blog where the writer states that even though most people think that you should always slip knitwise, it's the other way around.  Here's the link for anyone interested.

But anyways!  The only difference between the two is how you slip the stitches. : )

Thank you soozeq and Tephra! : )

Interesting, I was taught that unless it's a decrease, slip purlwise, so a purlwise slip in a decrease is a new one. So the result is a twisted left leaning double decrease, don't see many of those out there.

The entry at the Knitting Fiend site discusses slipping a stitch in general. She goes on to say "The most common reason to slip knitwise is to work an ssk type decrease"

So it's generally slip purlwise except for a decrease or if the pattern says different. The definitions of the decs (ssk/skp, s2kp, sk2p) should usually specify to slip knitwise.

I found you guys working on the same pattern I am and I still am not sure if I should sl2 k psso, slip purlwise both together or one at a time?  And then do I psso both together also, or one at a time?

When the dec starts out as slip 2, slip them together as if to k2tog and pass them over together too.
