Usually in your pattern they break down what they want you to do for ssk and other acronyms. If they don't I would slip 1 stitch and knit 1 stitch for ssk, slip stitch knit.

Yeah, this means to create a visible decrease slanting to the left.

So, you'll slip the two stitches one by one, as if to knit, from the LH needle to the right, then the tip of the LH needle is inserted into the front of the loops and the two stitches are knitted together.

Slip the 2 sts individually, then knit them together. It ends up being like slip 1, knit 1, psso, just done differently.

I prefer the skpo - does the same thing.  What you do is slip one stitch, then knit the next stitch, then pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch (like binding off).  Same thing.
