SSK - slip, slip, knit - left leaning decrease. Slip one stitch knit-wise (inserting the needle as of to make a knit stitch) then slip a 2nd stitch the same way. With your left handle needle insert the tip into the FRONT of the 2sts, leaving the right hand needle at the BACK of the 2sts. Then knit them together (you'll be knitting them together through the backs of the loops) Top Tip: you do not needle to transfer the 2sts back to the left needle before knitting them together! All that moving around loosens up the stitches and could potentially make your decrease messier. #learnitwithwoolly #instatutorial #woollywormheadtutorials #knittingtechniques #videoknits #knittingtutorial #knitstagram #increasesanddecreases #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram
K2TOG - knit 2 sts together, the ever faithful decrease. Simply insert your needle as if it knit through both stitches together, wrap your yarn around the needle treating them as one stitch, and pull through the loop creating one new stitch. Voila - one right leaning decrease performed! #instatutorial #instaknit #videoknits #learnitwithwoolly #knitstagram #woollywormheadtutorials #knitters #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #increasesanddecreases
