TO K2­TOG TBL OR NOT TO K2­TOG TBL

Simply Knitting - - Ask The Experts - Kirstie

Q Could you please ex­plain the di er­ence be­tween k2­tog and k2­tog tbl? Sharon Hussey, via email

The di er­ence is in the way the stitch will lie. If you k2­tog, the stitch leans to the left, but if you work k2­tog tbl (through the back of the loop) it will lean to the right. This method is used when knit­ting raglan sleeves and dec­o­ra­tive pat­terns.

2 Wind the yarn around the tip of the right-hand nee­dle and pull the yarn through the two stitches, knit­ting them both to­gether.

3 Drop the two stitches from the left-hand nee­dle and keep the new stitch on the right-hand nee­dle.

1 Insert the point of the right­hand nee­dle through the loops of the next two stitches as if to knit.
