It sounds like you may be decreasing too many stitches.. To SSK you slip one as if to knit, slip one as if to knit (or purl), then slip the left needle into the front loops and knit those two together through the back loops.
View the video for SSK here to make sure you're doing it correctly.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
