How do I do this stitch? SSK

I am doing the Feather and Fan Baby Sweater by Judith Durant, and seem to be stuck on how to do this stitch. The abbreviation is ssk and it says slip 1, slip 1, knit 2 slipped stitches together. When I slip the two stitch onto the right hand needle, how do I then knit them?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

i find it best to learn visually i hope this video helps

Assuming you are a right handed knitter.

  1. Slip the first stitch on left needle to the right needle as if you were going to knit the stitch, by placing the right needle into the stitch from left to right and move the stitch to right needle.
  2. Repeat 1) for the second stitch on the left needle.
  3. Place the left hand needle into front of the two slipped stitch.
  4. Knit the two stitches together through the back loop.

After you slip the sts, put the L needle into the front of them, and wrap the yarn around the R to knit them together.
