How to Knit the Zig Zag Stitch in the Round

Terms: YO- yarn over. This means to To make a yarn over, you simply bring the knitting yarn (the “over” strand) over the needle between two existing stitches on one row, and then work that strand as a stitch when you work your way back to it in the next row.

SSK- slip, slip, knit. This is used as a decrease. Work to the place where the decrease is to be made. Slip the next 2 stitches, one at a time as if to knit, to the right needle. Insert the left needle into the fronts of these two stitches and knit them together. One stitch is decreased. This decrease slants to the left.
