Video: P2TOG – Purl 2 Together

This is a right-leaning decrease that reduces the number of stitches on your needle by 1.

The purl 2 together is identical to the knit 2 together, only it’s used on the purl side (usually the WS) of the fabric. Doing a p2tog on the purl side will result in a k2tog on the knit side.

Abbreviation: P2tog


  1. With yarn in front, insert your right-hand needle from back to front through the first two stitches on your left needle.
  2. Purl the two stitches together as if they were one.

More Information

If you turn your work around, you’ll see a k2tog on the other side.
