Decreases

Slip, Slip, Knit (SSK)

This is a left slanting decrease that when worked decreases 1 stitch. It is common to find this decrease paired with the k2tog when working armhole decreases on garments with set-in sleeves.

1. Slip 1 stitch knitwise, slip the next stitch knitwise.
2. Insert the left needle into the fronts of these two stitches and knit them together.

    Hey, BeBe, thanks for this. I happened to find it when I did a search for German Short Row decreases. I met you at Madrona this past February. What a surprise to find you here as well. Happy knitting.
