How to Knit: Knit 2 Together (k2tog) & Slip, Slip, Knit (ssk) Decreases Tutorial

Today's tutorial is on 2 of the most common decrease stitches.

The Knit 2 Together (k2tog) is a right slanting decrease: Knit 2 stitches together as if they were one stitch knitting through both loops.

The Slip, Slip, Knit (ssk) is a left slanting decrease: Slip the first stitch as if to knit. Slip the 2nd stitch as if to knit. Slide both stitches from the right needle back to the left hand needle. Knit both stitches through the back loops together as if they were one stitch.
