When you knit 2 stitches together (abbreviated k2tog), they become 1 stitch. The stitch on the left overlaps the one on the right, and the decrease slants to the right. If you're working decreases in pairs (on either side of a neckline you're shaping, for example), use the k2tog on one side and the ssk decrease (see the later section, "Slip, slip, knit") on the other side.

To knit 2 stitches together on the right (knit) side of your knitted fabric, follow these steps:

  1. Insert the RH needle knitwise into the first 2 stitches on the LH needle at the same time.
  2. Knit them together as if they were 1 stitch (see Figure 6-12).
