Slip the first stitch on your left needle to the right needle KNITWISE, slip the second stitch on your left needle to the right needle KNITWISE, insert your left needle from left to right into the two stitches with the tip on in front (facing you) of the right needle, take the yarn around the back of your right needle and knit the two stitches together. This is a decrease which doesn't exactly mirror k 2 tog (knit two together), but does a pretty good job. It has pretty much replaced slip one, knit one, pass the slipped stitch over (sl 1, k 1, psso) as the matching decrease of choice.
