I made another cozy while toying around with stitch patterns for a pair of mittens I'm going to design using the latest skein of yarn StitchnPretty sent me. I love the little bits of silver the yarn has in it. Gussies it up, but isn't harsh on the hands when knitting. This one is going to a co-worker to protect her blackberry.
m1 - Make one - purl into the thread that runs between the stitch just worked and the next one on the needle
sl1 - Slip one - slip stitch to the right needle as if to knit
psso - Pass slipped stitch over - bring the slipped stitch off the left needle so that it wraps around the stitches worked since slipping it. This is a decrease.
