single left-slanting decrease: version A SKP

This decrease slants the stitches to the left on the knit side of the work. It is abbreviated as SKP or sl 1, k1, psso (slip one stitch, knit one stitch, pass slip stitch over knit stitch).

1. Slip one stitch knitwise, then knit the next stitch. Insert the left needle into the slipped stitch as shown. 2. Pass the slipped stitch over the knit stitch and off the right needle.
