Question on P2 tog tbl

I am working on a sweater that has many P2 tog tbl. This stitch is a royal pain in the but!!! Can anyone tell me if a SSK2 tog would give the same results?

Thanks for the help!!!

Not if you did it on the purl side…

A p2togtbl is like a ssk on the knit side, but if your pattern has decs on both sides you need to do a purl dec on the purl side. It might be easier if you do ssp - slip a stitch knitwise, slip another, then purl them together. That’s also the same, but easier to do than tbl.

Thanks Sue…I’m kinda new at this but I see what you’re saying. I’m learning something new every day!! :yay:
