How to decrease 2 stitches towards left and right with 2-color in English rib

In this DROPS video we show how to decrease 2 stitches towards left and how to decrease 2 stitches towards right. First we show how to decrease towards left: = decrease 2 stitches towards the left as follows: slip the first stitch and yarn over onto the right needle as if to knit together, knit the next 2 stitches together (i.e. 1 purl + stitch and yarn over), pass the slipped stitch and yarn-over over the knitted together stitches (= 2 stitches decreased). Then we show how to decrease toward the right: = decrease 2 stitches towards the right as follows: slip the first stitch and yarn over onto the right needle as if to knit together, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch and yarn-over over the purled stitch, slip the stitch back onto the left needle, pass the stitch and yarn-over over the stitch which was slipped back onto the left needle and slip the remaining stitch onto the right needle (= 2 stitches decreased). We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video. You must read a pattern, the chart explanation and look at the chart to be able to follow this video properly.
