The Crossed Right Slanted Decrease

About this Stitch Pattern

The Crossed Right Slanted Decrease is a way of shaping your work by removing stitches from your work. This decrease is different from a lot of other decreases because it is a mirror to the knit two together through the back loop (k2tog tbl), a twisted left leaning decrease.
