Left and Right slanted decreases
Most knitters I know have a hard time with left and right decreases the ssk and k2tog. The ssk never looks right. This week Nona
set a challenge to see who could come up with the best looking ones. I took some pictures of how I do it. See pictures I think these are the left decreases that look the best. It is a matter of turning the stitches around and having the one that is going to lay on top be the first stitch you put the needle through.
My stitches for some reason lay opposite of most people. I don't know exactly why. Just experiment and turn the stitches the way they should be for your particular decrease.
