Is a ssk the same as k2togtbl? s1k1psso? (left slanting decrease)

K1F&B the same as a YO?

None of them are exactly alike and YO is different than all of them. A YO increase creates a hole/eyelet. KFB leaves a small 'bar' on the increased stitch which can also be decorative. Go to the increase video page and you can see how they all look on the sample.

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

A SSK and a sl1, k1, psso are both left slanting decreases and look just the tiniest bit different, but are basically the same thing. The rest are different.

While ssk, sl k psso and k2togtbl are all left slanting decs, the k2tog tbl twists the sts; slipping the sts on the other ones keeps them from being twisted.

A YO increase leaves a hole, kfb doesn't, and m1 is another increase. Look at the Increases and Decreases page for videos.
