How do I decrease the number of stitches in knitting?
Make a new decrease by knitting two stitches together. Insert the needle through the next two stitches and knit a stitch. You will see how the decrease at the end of the row leans to the right. Repeat and knit as many decreases as you need.
How do you decrease stitches at the beginning and end of a row?
Decrease at the beginning of a row, called “KSK PSSO”.
Put the needle in the second stitch as though you were going to knit it, but gently slip it onto the right needle. Knit the next stitch. Put the left needle into the front of the slipped stitch on the right needle as though you were going to purl it.
