Ok, I’m starting to shape the top of my first hat. :woohoo: It’s the Blizzard Hat in the Creative Knitting Magazine. The pattern lists a “Special Abbreviation” Central Double Decrease (CDD): Sl next 2 sts as if to k2tog, k1, p2sso.
I understand the terms as: Slip the next two stitches as if to knit two together, then knit one, then pass the two slipped stitches over.
So I pretended like I was gonna k2tog, and slipped the two sts onto my right needle. Then I knit one, and then I passed the two slipped sts back onto the left needle, over that most recent knit stitch.
Was this correct? It doesn’t seem to be decreasing anything. :eyebrow2: I’m starting with 42 sts, and at the end of the row I should have 28.
Btw, the colors I’m using are a gorgeous, dark forest green, and a variegated tan, and the hat is turning out sooooooo pretty and cool. (It’s my first hat, I can brag.)
