Ch. 15 Decreasing
How to Decrease – K2TOG – Knit 2 Together
Whew! Look how much you’ve learned, and we’re only halfway through this project.
When you have 44 stitches on your needle, it’s time to start decreasing.
Decreasing is quite easy – you just knit two stitches together as if they are one. However, since we need to maintain the decorative holes (yarnovers) that border the dishcloth, we’ll be doing two decreases, one on either side of the yarnover. Follow me.
Just continue in this pattern until you again have four stitches on your needle.
Now you can bind off and weave in your ends.
If you’d like to add a crocheted border and a little loop to hang up the dishcloth, check out this video on my blog.
PS – Don’t forget to link your project to the pattern on Ravelry.
You can put down any notes about the project – what you thought of the pattern, if you enjoyed it, anything you’d do differently next time… These comments help other people who are thinking about making the same pattern.
