How to decrease by ssk

In this DROPS video we show how to decrease by ssk

The abbreviation SSK stands for: slip, slip, knit and means that you slip 1 st, slip the next, then put left needle back into the slipped sts and knit them together.
This will create a decrease leaning to the left. This method gives the exact same dec result as "slip 1, K1, psso".

Our video is showing you how to SSK first in continental style, and then in US style knitting.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

The video above can be used in the following patterns
