Hi there, left-handed Knookers! Ready to learn some decrease techniques? I really hope so, because that's what I'm going to be talking for the next few tutorials.
Decreasing your stitches helps you shape your project, provide pretty edges to patterns, and means you can make adorable baby hats. Remember when I talked about those? Baby hats are the cutest baby accessories, right after those tiny little socks. Actually, it might be a tie. I'm going to meet at least half a dozen brand new babies next year, so I'll do some serious research and get back to you on that. Regardless of what I find, I think everyone knows that baby hats are precious and hats in general are awesome. Especially at this time of year.
Are you super eager to learn about how to decrease stitches for hats or booties or whatever using the K2TOG technique? Then here you go!

See how simple that was? Knitting two stitches together is a simple and straightforward way to decrease the number of stitches you have in your project.
In other news, my lofty endeavor to Knook every dishcloth in Dishcloths Made with the Knook is still going pretty well. See?
This is the Textured pattern. I used an I/9 Knook and some kind of Sugarn' Cream cotton yarn. I lost the label, and I don't know what colorway this is.
Four dishcloths down, six to go! I'm having fun learning about how to Knook.
I hope you are, too.
