Yes, SSK does mean slip, slip and Knit, BUT after u slip the 2 stitches, take your left needle insert into front of slipped stitches so that you can knit the back of the slipped stitches. If you read the comments from her website, you will see that others had ques so creator of this pattern listed a video showing how it is done. This is actually a decrease stitch.


Row 1: *k1, p1* to end Row 2: *p1, k1* to end...I have a question, after I cast on 46 stitches do I start Rows 1 and 2 with the pattern above or do I start with the pattern below...Row 1: [yo, k10, k2tog] 3 times Row 2 (and all even rows): p all sts I'm just a bit confused...:)
