I have a pattern for a child's hat that calls for SK2P as the way to decrease at the crown. Has anyone seen this before? I tried slipping (as if to knit), knitting two stitches and passing the slipped stitch over the two knitted stitiches. However, I only decrease by one stitch and should be decreasing 2 stitches with each SK2P, 6 per row.
Anyone ever used this stitch? Or, should I just K2TOG?

Doesn't it say anywhere on the pattern? Any "key" or something?

My guess would be slip 2 knitwise and pass those two stitches over the next stitch. That gives you a double decrease.

Another option might be K2Tog and pass that stitch over the next stitch...

But look everywhere on the pattern - there should be a breakdown of things like that.

Just from the initials, I'd guess slip, k2tog, pass slipped st. over. That'll give you the double decr., and makes sense of the letters used.

But, Amie is correct, there should be a key somewhere.

It's a feature, not a bug.

Slip next stitch, knit 2 together, then pass slip stitch over.
