View Full Version : reading a pattern help please

09-14-2007, 01:32 PM
I'm brand new to knitting and am having trouble reading my pattern, thought I'd picked an easy enough one. It reads "Row 1 - K2; * YO, K2tog; rep from * to last st, K1.

It's the K2tog I'm not clear on. Can someone please make that part clear for me?

When you k2tog you're going to knit two together. Take your right needle and slip it into TWO stitches on the left needle and knit them as usual.
