We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people around the world, speaking different languages, many of whom do not understand English.

We have therefore written instructions to accompany this video, and there is no sound to disturb while watching. Enjoy!

In this DROPS video we show how to decrease 2 stitches towards left and 2 stitches towards right with 2-coloured English rib from.

Decrease towards the left:
Purl 2 together (yarn over and purled stitch + knit 1), slip the next yarn-over and purled stitch onto right needle, place them back on left needle so the stitch is outermost (and yarn over no. 2), place purled-together stitches back on left needle, keep strand at front of piece, pass stitch and yarn over onto left needle (i.e. second and third stitch on left needle) over the stitch which was placed back on left needle (with strand in front of piece). To finish place this stitch back on the right needle (= 2 stitches decreased)

Decrease towards the right (it is important to keep the strand at the front of the piece the whole time during this decrease):
Slip yarn over and purled stitch onto right needle, place knitted stitch on an extra needle in front of piece (with strand in front of stitch), slip the next yarn over and purled stitch from left needle onto right needle, place stitch from extra needle back on left needle, purl this stitch, pass purled stitch and yarn over (i.e. second and third stitch on right needle) over the outermost stitch, pass next purled stitch and yarn-over (i.e. second and third stitch on right needle) over outermost stitch (= 2 stitches decreased)

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.
