How to decrease towards left, right and how to decrease 4 stitches together

In this DROPS video we show how we decrease 2 stitches towards left, 2 stitches towards right and how do decrease 4 stitches together. These techniques are used in the Lacey Laurel shawl in DROPS 203-14. We have already worked 30 rows of a chart with 2 stitches in garter st in each side and show 1st row in this video how we decrease 2 stitches towards the left as follows: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit the next 2 stitches together and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches (= 2 stitches decreased). Then knit 1, knit 1 in stitch under the next stitch. 1 knit. Then we show how to decrease 2 stitches towards the right as follows: Knit 3 stitches together (= 2 stitches decreased). On row 35 we decrease 4 stitches as follows: Slip 3 stitches as if to knit them together, knit the next 2 stitches together and pass the 3 slipped stitches over the knitted together stitches (= 4 stitches decreased). Under the pattern DROPS 203-14 you can read how to work the other chart icons. This shawl is knitted in DROPS Alpaca, but in the video we use a thicker yarn; DROPS Eskimo. You must read the pattern and look at the charts as well as watch the video. You can find the pattern for this shawl by clicking on the image below.
