This reduces the number of stitches by two and is neatly centered (no leaning at all). One of my personal favorites.
Also called: Centered Double Decrease
Slip 2, knit 1, psso:
- With yarn in back, insert your right-hand needle from front to back through the first two stitches on your left needle. Let both stitches slip off onto the right-hand needle.
- Knit the next stitch.
- Insert the tip of the left-hand needle into the 2 stitches you just slipped to the right-hand needle and pass them over the stitch you just knitted.
Also called a "centered double decrease (CDD)," this decrease is symmetrical. Reduces 3 stitches into 1.
