To work a left-slanting double decrease on the purl side, do the following:

1. Purl 2 stitches together.

Flip back to the section, "Purling 2 stitches together," to find out how to do so.

  1. Slip this decreased stitch back to the LH needle.
  2. With the RH needle, bring the second stitch on the LH needle over the decreased stitch and off the needle.
  3. Return the decreased stitch to the RH needle. Vertical double decrease

  1. Slip the first 2 stitches on the LH needle to the RH needle (as if to knit).
  2. Knit the next stitch on the LH needle.
  3. With the LH needle, bring both slipped stitches together over the knitted stitch and off the RH needle, as in Figure 6-16.
