When a pattern says K2 tog.... I understand this

On the next row do I separate those stitches or am I taking two strands ( loops from the left needle) and knitting them together.

Am I making myself clear?

Thank you sincerely

YOUR ANSWER


I think your meaning is clear, but we will soon know it it isn't as I will answer the wrong question!

When you are knitting two stitches together (k2tog) you are forming a stitch by pulling the yarn through 2 loops on the needle instead of the usual 1.

The stitch you form is a single stitch on the row where you have knit the stitches together, so on the following row you would not do anything differently. Just knit or purl each stitch as per your knitting instructions.

The only difference will be that you have 1 stitch less on the next row for each time you have knitted two stitches together.

Hope this helps...
