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. But either way, they are both left-leaning (the opposite of k2tog, which is right-leaning). You can also substitute k1 sl1 psso, same thing: left-keaning decrease.

Is SSK the same as k2tbl?
My brain (let’s blame it on new glasses) was thinking of knitting 2 together. Sorry! They slant the same way, but k2tog tbl twists the stitches where they lie flat in SSK.
