Slip Slip Knit (ssk)



Demystifying the Slip Slip Knit (SSK) Stitch


The slip slip knit (SSK) stitch is a crucial technique in knitting, used for creating neat left-leaning decreases in your projects. Let's explore its simplicity and utility.


Understanding SSK: SSK involves slipping two stitches individually knitwise onto the right-hand needle, then knitting them together through the back loops. This creates a smooth left-leaning decrease.


To execute the slip slip knit (ssk) stitch:

  1. Slip one stitch knitwise onto the right-hand needle.

  2. Slip a second stitch knitwise onto the right-hand needle.

  3. Insert the left-hand needle into the front loops of both slipped stitches.

  4. Knit these two stitches together through the back loops.
