Slip the first stitch in this sequence to your right needle. In this case you should slip it knitwise to make a smoother lying finished stitch. Knit the next stitch. Now with the tip of your left needle pick up the slipped stitch and pass it over the stitch which you just knit. The one stitch will seem to be sprouting out of the other and you will have decreased one stitch.
This move is also abbreviated s1, k1, psso. Its close cousin is ssk and they are often (but not always - be careful and test if you want to substitute one for the other) interchangeable.
Both of these decreases lean in the opposite direction from k2 tog and are therefore often paired with that decrease on opposite edges of sweaters and other items.
