How to Decrease (p3tog)
Stitches | 1 min read time
Purling three stitches together is a method to decrease the row by two stitches.
Top Tip: Remember to keep your yarn at the front of your work when creating a purl stitch.
Insert your right needle through the front of the next three stitches on your left needle.
With the yarn in front of the needles, wrap it anti-clockwise around the tip of the right needle.
With the tip of the right needle, draw a loop through and out of the 3 stitches towards the back.
Slide the 3 combined stitches off the left needle.
You have now decreased by purling three stitches together.
