Slipping the first stitch of an SKP decrease.

SKP, or slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over (also sometimes abbreviated sl 1, k 1, psso) is an easy left-leaning decrease that gives basically the same effect as an SSK or slip, slip, knit.

To begin, work to where the decrease is supposed to be in the row and slip the first stitch as if to knit.
