"ssk"?

Hello. I am working on a collar for a cardigan. The pattern reads: “…pat 25 sts, ssk, k1…” What does “ssk” mean???
Thank you!!
:smiley:

ssk stands for slip, slip, knit

What you do is slip two stitches individually as if to knit onto the right needle. Then you put your left needle in throught the front loop of those stitches and knit them together.

Another way to do it is to slip the two stitches as above, pass them back to the left needle and knit them through the back loops, together.

It’s a decrease.
