How to p2tog

You’ll need to be able to shape your knitting by increasing and decreasing stitches. K2tog is knitting shorthand for “knit two together” and is a simple way to decrease stitches as you work.

Here’s how you do it

  1. In order to purl 2 stitches together to decrease take your right-hand needle and insert through the first 2 stitches from front to back.
  2. Wrap the yarn around the right hand needle as in the knit stitch.
  3. Pull the loop through knitting the 2 stitches together, then slip both stitches off the needle.
