A few weeks ago I remember finding a blog where a lady had a sort of unofficial contest to see who could come up with the best replacement for ssk (to make it lie as flat an k2tog) and there were a WHOLE BUNCH of creative entries but I can't find the page again! Has anybody else seen this, or can you help find it? Thanks a bunch!

I don't know if that is the site Aiden was talking about, but that is great! :thumbsup: I hate how SSK looks on my sleeves!

YES!
Thank you SO MUCH!

It's funny, but as I was reading my newest EZ book last night, I also found yet /another/ trick for a left-leaning decrease which was to SSKK - Slip Slip Knit Krebs (It was created by a Jean Krebs, the name is homage to her) Basically it's SSK but you put the tip of the lefthand needle in the FRONT and knit them together from this position.

That sounds incredibly awkward, but certainly worth a try! :thumbsup:

I actually used to do that, before I understood how SSK is "supposed" to be done.

I always use Amy's improved ssk, which seems to work pretty well. Do you guys like one of these other methods better?

I use the improved ssk, but it still "shows." I have to find some other way. I'll try out some of Nona's suggestions!
