Have you ever seen K2TOG or P2TOG on a pattern and wondered what it meant…or how to even do it?? They are simply decreasing stitches.
K2TOG means to knit 2 stitches together at the same time. So, instead of knitting 1 stitch like you normally would, you knit 2…that’s it!
P2TOG means to purl 2 stitches together at the same time. Same as a normal purl…only you purl 2.
Let’s get started! So, grab your knitting and follow along with the steps below and we’ll have you knitting like a pro!
Now, how to P2TOG:
I hope you loved learning these two new stitches, so you can go forth and conquer more patterns!! If you didn’t quite master it the first time, don’t give up & practice it a couple more times…remember I couldn’t even knit a washcloth when I first learned to knit.
