Knitting: How-to Knit 2 Together (k2tog)

Learning how to decrease stitches in knitting is very easy! It's as simple as knitting two stitches together to create one stitch. Here's how it's done.

Step 1:  Starting with the working yarn in back, insert the tip of the right hand needle into the 2 stitches you will be knitting together. The tip enters the stitches from bottom to top and the right hand needle will be behind the left.

Step 2:  Bring the working yarn forward between the needles.
Step 3:  Swoop downward with the right hand tip, catching and drawing the working yarn through both stitches, and sliding the combined stitch off the needle.
One stitch decreased.
