Knit Tutorial - Simple Knit Decreases.



Step by Step Guide


SSK - Slip slip knit


This creates a left leaning decrease.

  1. Slip the next stitch from left to right needle, by inserting the right needle into the loop from left to right (as if you wanted to knit it).

  2. Again, slip the next stitch from left to right needle, by inserting the right needle into the loop from left to right (as if you wanted to knit it).

  3. Insert the left needle into the front loops of the two slipped stitches from right to left.

  4. Wrap your yarn around the right needle and pull it through the two loops.

  5. Let the loops fall off the left needle.

  1. Insert the right needle into the back loops of the next two stitches on the left needle from right to left.

  2. Wrap the yarn around the needle and pull through both loops.

  3. Let the loops fall off the left needle.
