It's usually used in conjunction with a slip 1.  Sometimes you see it written as SKP--slip one, knit one, pass slipped stitch over.   

What does the whole string of directions say?

It's a type of decrease.

You slip a stitch from left needle to the right one, knit the next stitch(so now that is on the right needle too) then you pass the slipped stitch over that stitch you just knitted.

You slip it over the k2tog stitch (and, when you slip it, it goes off the needle, the way the passed stitched does when you bind off)

Awww, no dumb questions!  The first time I saw slip one (written as Sl1) I saw it as S 11.  I didn't understand why no one knew what S 11 meant.  Turns out the L and the 1 looked awfully similar!

i want to try these adorable little booties - as was the problem before, i'm a little confused with this....
on the instep and sides directions it says, knit 14, place marker, slip 1 (as if to knit) PSSO

is slipping a stitch putting a stitch you would knit onto the other needle? if so, then were do you "pass it over"?

if you could help i would be v. grateful Smiley

You're missing an instruction there. It's "knit 14, place marker, slip 1 (as if to knit), knit 1, psso."

But yes. Slipping a stitch is putting it onto the right needle without working it. You're just moving the stitch around. Then you knit the next stitch, and move the slipped stitch over the knit stitch and off the needle.
