K2tog tbl

The simplest way to create a left leaning decrease is to knit two stitches together through the back loop (k2tog tbl). This stitch can be found in many lace patterns and was the decrease of choice before the invention of the slick ssk stitch.

    Is this the same as an SSK – Looks like it.

    Good eagle eyes! The k2tog tbl and the ssk are both left leaning decreases. However, the ssk is a bit tidier and more closely mirrors a k2tog.
