SSK is slip, slip (knitwise) and knit the 2 together. It's much like slip, knit 1, pass sl st over.

You slip both slips knitwise don't you. Ok..how do you knit them both if they are slipped on to right needle?

Watch Amy's video on how to do a SSK here (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/decrease.php)

You are slipping 2 stitches from the left needle to the right needle then inserting the left needle and knittng the 2 stitches together.
