Left sleeve only Place a marker at the beg of last row – this marker matches up with the front neck fas­ten-off point. The purl two to­gether stitch (p2­tog) is used to com­bine two stitches on a purl row, de­creas­ing one stitch each time you use it. From the purl side of the work it leans left, so when viewed from the right (knit) side in stock­ing stitch it will lean to the right, and look like you’ve made a k2­tog stitch on the knit side of the work. 1 With your yarn held at the front of the work, insert the right hand nee­dle into the next two stitches purl­wise, from right to left. 2 Wrap the yarn around the nee­dle in front of both stitches anti-clock­wise and purl the stitches to­gether, tak­ing your time. 3 Com­plete the p2­tog by drop­ping the two stitches off the left hand nee­dle leav­ing you with a sin­gle stitch on your right hand nee­dle.
