SIMPLE STEPS K2TOG
K2tog (or knit two together) is the easy way to decrease. This decrease results in a stitch that leans right, so if a pattern asks for a rightleaning decrease use k2tog. When decreasing at both ends of a row, on the RS start with a left-leaning decrease and end the row with a right-leaning decrease. For the left-leaning decreases (SSK and SSP) see our tutorial section on page 91. 1 Insert right hand needle into the next two stitches as if to knit them. Your needle should go into the second stitch on your left hand needle, before the first stitch. 2 Wrap the working yarn around your right hand needle and knit the two stitches together, working otherwise as if you were knitting a single stitch. 3 Slip the two old stitches off left hand needle. You now have a single new stitch on right hand needle to replace the two old stitches. You’ve now decreased one stitch.
