Knit 2 together ... through the back loop?
Hi

I am working on the Debbie Bliss Teddy Bear pattern is at:

http://www.allaboutyou.com/craft/ted...ing-pattern/v1

It includes the decrease K2 tog tbl - knit 2 together through back loop.

Not sure exactly how to execute this instruction - do I simply knit the back of the stitch as I would if, for example, making a kfb increase?

Many thanks for any help,

Irishmam

You do knit them together through the back loops of both sts. However, I don't like this dec as it makes the sts twisted like it does when you ktbl. So you can substitute ssk or sl knit psso for a left leaning dec.

Thanks Suzie - it did seem a bit convoluted for a simple left leaning dec. I will go with the s knit psso as you suggest.

Thanks you,

Irishmam
