I have knitted many longies/shorties and even a skirty, but I"m now encountering something new: SSK.
I am knitting a cabled baby hat. The cable part does not sound difficult (in fact, the videos make it look quite simple). My question is regarding the SSK. I watched the video here on knitting help about SSK. I understand that you slip two stitches knitwise, then stick the left needle in and knit them together that way. OK, I understand.
Here is my problem: The pattern I am following says, “*SSK, K2tog, P2, K6, P2” then later says “K1, P1, SSK, K2tog, P1”.
I am assuming that the SSK is a decrease, and the K2tog is ANOTHER decrease, but I want to make sure before I proceed. Is this two decreases, or not?
Thanks so much!!!
