As a beginner I am trying very hard but your last response was not only unhelpful but offensive I am also male by the way despite you keep referring to me as Mrs

Dear Mr Barley, we are sorry and didn't intend to be offensive, last answer has been edited into Mr - there are different way to decrease 2 stitches, this video is showing only 2 ways with K3 tog and K3 twisted together, so it's always better to refer to the pattern to be sure that's how you are intended to decrease these 2 stitches. If you are still not sure, please leave a question under the pattern you are working on so that we can check if it is the right way to decrease the 2 stitches. Happy knitting!

Further to my last query about the raglan I have now watched the video on decreasing by 3, is this the technique we are supposed to use

Dear Mr Barley, if you are suppose to work K3 together and/or K3 twisted together, that's they way you are suppose to work, except if the pattern is giving another explanation/description to the decrease. Happy knitting!

Videoen bliver ved at køre i tomgang uden at gå vidre til at vise videoen på noget tidspunkt
