Stitchopedia Video & Photo Tutorial

Do you know how to p2tog? It’s just exactly what it sounds like, you purl, but instead of picking up 1 stitch, you pick up 2 and then you just purl them as one. So it’s a decrease stitch that can be worked on the purl side of your piece. I’ve made a video and also have written out instructions with photos. Time to p2tog my friends!

Written instructions with photos

Insert right needle from right front to left front through the first 2 stitches on the left needle. This is the same as for a regular purl, just through 2 stitches instead of one. Now the rest of the stitch is worked in the same manner as a purl.
