P2(3)tog: knit two(three) sts together pm: place marker RH: Right hand

RS: right side sl1: slip one st SS3tog: Insert tip of RH needle into 2nd st on LH needle and also into 1st (as if to K2tog), slip both off needle together, then insert RH needle tip into 3rd st and knit all 3 together. sm: slip marker SSK: slip 2 sts knitwise, one at a time, return sts to LH needle, knit these two slipped sts tog tbl st st: stocking stitch (knit RS rows, purl WS rows) tbl: through back of loops wrp1: wrap 1 – bring yarn fwd under needle, sl 1 st off the left hand needle to the right hand needle, yarn back, return slipped st to left hand needle, turn work, finish off the row according to instruction.
