Left Leaning Decreases

July 4, 2019

Left leaning decreases can look sloppy, I think I’ve tried them all – SSK, knitting two together through the backs of loops, and slip 1, knit 1, psso. None of them were particularly neat. Then I had a lightbulb moment 💡😁. I’m quite sure I’m not the first person to think of this, but….

Slip 1 KNITwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over.

The knitwise bit is the secret – if you slip the stitch purlwise (as you would normally do) you get that loose sloppy edge
