I am just starting a vest for my DH and after the 2x2 ribbing at bottom of the back the pattern says to end "on" RS and then decrease on the next row a certain # of sts spaced evenly in the row after having changed to larger needles. If I am reading this correctly I would be doing purl decreases as the body of the vest is St st. What is the best purl decrease to use???
Heaven help you if you're not as smart as your Corgi!!
A P2tog is a right slanting decrease and a SSP (slip slip purl) is a left slanting decrease for the wrong side of your work, if it matters which way it slants in your particular pattern. There is a video of SSP about half way down this page.
