Monday Mini Tip - Double Decreases at Beginning and End of Pattern Repeats

Welcome to another Monday Mini Tip. Today, I thought I'd talk about double decreases and how they impact pattern repeats when they are placed at the beginning and end of a pattern repeat.

A double decrease is a decrease that decreases from three to one stitch and include sl1, k2tog, psso/sk2po (slipe one stitch, knit two stitches together, pass slipped stitch over), sl2, k1, psso/s2kpo (slip two stitches, knit one stitch, pass slipped stitches over), k3tog (knit three stitches together), sssk (slip three stitches knitwise (one at a time), insert left needle into the front of all three stitches and knit together). There are more but these are the most commonly used double decreases.

In the video below I use two charts - Chart A and B. Below are the two charts and chart key. Don't worry too much if you don't like charts, you don't really need to understand them to understand this tutorial.
