ssk - slip, slip, knit: slip the first stitch on the left hand needle as if to knit, repeat with the second stitch on the left hand needle, insert the left hand needle into the front loops of theses stitches from left to right, wrap yarn around right hand needle and knit the two slipped stitches together.
