I cannot discern the difference between K2tog and SSK. I know that k2tog is supposed to slant to the right and SSK is supposed to slant to the left. For SSK, the instructions in the book say to slip the 2 stitches as if to knit but then to put them back on the left needle and knit them together. How does this differ from knitting 2 together? How does it get the slant to form the opposite way as the k2tog?
I eventually want to form my own design for a v neck sweater by starting from the bottom up then dividing the sides and doing a V neck. I will have to know the difference for my design.
