How to SSK- Slip, Slip, Knit

Abbreviation: SSK
Important: Most videos and instructions won’t tell you that you need to slip the stitches as if to KNIT. If you slip the stitches purlwise instead the stitch will turn out wonky!

SSK is a left leaning decrease … it leans the opposite direction of a k2tog, and is often used as the “opposite” decrease of a k2tog- which is important in lace and when you want decreases to appear mirror image or seamlessly.

This is part of Knit School on Midnightsky Fibers! If you found it helpful, it would be great if you shared it!
