Knit two together is the most basic method of decreasing stitches. It makes a decrease that slants slightly to the right and is often abbreviated as K2Tog or k2tog in patterns. To “knit two together” is just like making a regular knit stitch, but you work through two stitches instead of just one.
How do I knit two knitted pieces together?
To knit 2 stitches together, just insert the right needle into two stitches at the same time and knit. This will result in a decrease of one stitch. This decrease will slant to the right.

Is SSK the same as k2tbl?
They slant the same way, but k2tog tbl twists the stitches where they lie flat in SSK. Thanks! I’m still not very good at SSK so it’s nice to know I have an option. You could try slip 1, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over; it’s essentially the same as SSK, and I do both pretty much interchangeably.
