K2tog – tbl does not produce the same result as SSK: with k2tog – tbl the stitches get twisted (they don’t in the SSK ). The two stitches do look different.

What is the difference between k2tog and k2tog TBL?
When you k2tog tbl, you’re not twisting them first. With the ssk the stitches lie flat when you’re done, but with k2togtbl they lie twisted.
