“Mirror Knitting” – Knitting Backwards Decreases

Last week I showed you Knitting Backwards. This week I have decreases that you may want to work while knitting backwards. These would be a p2tog and ssp on the WS of the work when purling, but when knitting backwards, these are the “backwards” k2tog and ssk.

Next week I’ll show you purling backwards! It’s not as commonly needed, but can be handy to know how to do.

Until then, Happy Knitting!
