What is ssk?
I am a newbie knitter, and Im about to start on knitting a teddy bear as a Christmas present, and I was reading it over just to make sure I understood the pattern and its abbreviations because I want it to be perfect for my special someone:

http://www.petitepurls.com/Winter09/...009_pkoda.html

But when I reread the instructions for the left leg: round 5, it said w & t . What is that? And also on that section, at round 7 and even more times throughout the pattern, it mentions to ssk.

Please help with these abbreviations?

W&T stands for wrap and turn. If you look under the videos section here and look for the short rows video, there is a good video of how to wrap and turn in there.

Hi, yes the video for the Short Rows is under the Advanced Techniques page near the bottom. And here's another tutorial for doing it.
