The Alternative Slip Slip Knit Decrease is a variation of the Slip Slip Knit decrease. It’s a method of removing stitches from your work to shape your work. This method makes a left leaning decrease, and is a mirror of the Knit Two Together decrease. The Alternative SSK modifies the SSK to make a slightly flatter decrease.
Step 1: Slip first stitch knitwise with working needle.
Step 2: Slip the second stitch purlwise with the working needle.
