Loom Knit The Fern Lace Stitch

Well Isela Phelps has done it again. She has made another fantastic video demonstrating another good stitch you can do on your loom. The Fern Lace stitch is the latest stitch she is teaching loom knitters how to do. In the video uploaded under the PurlingSprite video Isela Phelps teaches you the stitch used in the Friendship Shawl Design. As always she takes her time in explaining what she is doing giving the viewer good close-ups of the knitting as she is doing the work. The video only covers the first few rows but the explanations and shots of what she is doing will teach you enough to do the fern lace stitch.

Isela does show you an example of what your work will look like after you get well into your project. Another good thing she does is to give you the pattern she is using. This is the breakdown to the pattern she is using:
Row 1: K to the end of row
Row 2: k3, *yo, k2, sl1-k1-psso, k2tog, k2, yo, k1; rep from * to last st k1
Row 3: K to the end of row
Row 4: k2, *yo, k2, sl1-k1-psso, k2tog, k2, yo, k1; rep from * to last 2sts, k2

    can you write out what the abbreviation psso means and do you just repeat these 4 rows all over?

      PSSO is an abbreviation used in knitting patterns which is short for, “Pass Slip Stitch Over” meaning that you slip 1, knit 1, and then pass the first stitch over the second.
      Isela in the video says to repeat the pattern after completing row 4 until you have your desired length.
