Easy, right? The important thing to remember when working this stitch is that, even though you start by knitting two stitches together, this is not a decrease stitch. After following all of the steps you will still have two stitches in the end.

    • This is a great question. Unknit it in two steps. You can think of the RT stitch as a combination of two stitches – a k2tog and then a knit stitch. Unknit the knit stitch first and then unknit the k2tog. I hope this is helpful!
