This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the center double purl decrease. This decrease removes two stitches at once and creates an interesting decrease that slants evenly into the center rather than left or right.
Materials Used in this Tutorial
KnitOuttaTheBox Afghanistan Cashmere
Sourced and spun entirely in Afghanistan, this 100% cashmere yarn is the ultimate in “feel good” yarn. The yarn is spun by Afghan women from their homes and they receive a fair wage for their labor. As a fair trade product, it not only feels good while you are wearing it, but you can feel good knowing that your purchase is helping someone live a better life.
