How to decrease by knitting 2 stitches together (K2tog)

In this DROPS video we show how to knit 2 stitches together (aka K2tog).

This is probably the easiest way to decrease 1 stitch: knit 2 stitches together as one. In the video we first knit 2 stitches together in the front loops, the dec leans right.
Then we knit 2 stitches twisted together, i.e. we knit them together in the back loops and the dec leans to the left.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

The video above can be used in the following patterns
