SSK vs k2tog
I have a question about those 2 - I'm self-taught, so every once in a while I'm not sure if I'm doing things right. I'm currently working on a pattern which incorporates both SSK and k2tog. While k2tog is fairly straightforward, I'm not sure if I'm doing SSK right....I find that when I do it, it comes out as if I'm doing k2tog, but in the back loop(s) instead of the front (my needle goes into the back of those 2 stitches from right to left). Am I doing this correct?
Thanks

After you slip each stitch individually as if to knit onto your right needle and you reinsert your left needle, it is like knitting into the back loops, so you're doing it correctly.

If you want to see video, you can check out the ssk in the abbreviations section or decrease section.
