When you ssk, after you slip 1 knitwise before you slip one purlwise, do you bring the yarn forward? I haven't been, but am wondering if I should?<br><br>
(I'm doing the raglan decreases in the LTK raglan in the round)

nope yarn in back and your right needle goes into the BACK of these two stitches and you wrap your yarn as if you are going to knit and do so! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

thanks! that's the way I was doing it, but I'm always second guessing myself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> .

hmm.. when i ssk, i slip 1 knitwise, slip 1 knit wise and when those two stitches are on my right needle, i insert the left needle into the front of those two stitches and then knit them together (yarn in back so it's a knit)<br><br>
what does sliping the second one purlwise do? never tried that before.

I don't really know, but the directions in the pattern say to slip one knitwise, slip one purlwise...and knittinghelp.com says under the abbreviations this is "improved" ssk.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

when you slip the second as if to purl, it makes for a more uniform look <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> the second stitch *purl wise* kind of just hides behind the slipped knit stitch... hth!
