I am making the Poinsettia Mittens. I am a new knitter (just one year) so I struggle at understanding the patterns. I am at the area where I am to decrease the top of the mitten; patter says N1 and N2 with a SSK decrease, and end N1 and N3 with a K2tog decrease. Blank squares on charts represent "no stitch."

So does this mean I start the pattern by N1, N2 then SSK, does that include the SSK piece? That is, do I actually N2 then slip 2 and then complete the SSK? Thank you in advance for help. I love this website I have learned so much here. :cheering:

I think the N1, N2 and N3 refer to the needles. I also think you left out a few words in your explanation. Can you type only that row? That might make it a little easier to understand.
