S2KP2 (centered double decrease)

S2KP stands for “slip 2, knit, pass slipped sts over.” It is a centered double decrease.


Step 1
Slip 2 stitches together knitwise.


Step 2
Knit the next stitch.
Pass the 2 slipped stitches over this stitch.

The finished decrease has a knit stitch in the middle with the stitches on either side slanting towards it. In a mitered square, this decrease creates a definite line that becomes part of the pattern.
