Most of us are familiar with the usual decreases: k2tog, that beautiful right-slanting decrease; and ssk (slip, slip, knit), the left-leaning opposite. These two workhorses have served us well when we've needed to shape our projects. So, we should be pretty content with our decreasing situation, right? No!

Read our blog post to learn different variations of the left-slanting decrease, as well as how to decrease 2, 3 and even 4 stitches in distinct directions. Applicable to nearly all aspects of knitting, the decreasing tricks you're about to learn will encourage you to explore new combinations, both functional and decorative, when shaping shawls, armholes, waistlines or even sock toes.
