Increase and Decreases Photo Tutorials

Here are photo tutorials of the techniques used for increase and decreases. To show steps better, they are worked with a thicker yarn, always using two strands of yarn held together.

K2TOG (Knit Two Together)

K2TOG - needle into first 2 sts

Insert right needle into the first 2 sts on the left needle at the same time from left to right.

K2TOG - knit 2 sts together

Knit two sts together as follows: wrap the yarn around the needle counter-clockwise by going in from behind, then pull the working yarn through both sts at the same time.

K2TOG - 1 decrease slanting to the right

You will obtain 1 decrease slanting to the right.
