knit 2 together, pull 2 together

Hello,

I found a knitting pattern that says knit 2 together and pull 2 together in the same 2 stitches ( so you don’t end up with a decrease) I’ve never seen this before and I can’t find anything on it when I google it. Does anyone know what this means?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome!
I couldn’t find a video for just this but it’s very similar to knit 1 purl 1 into the same stitch.
In your case you’ll be working 2 sts together but otherwise quite like the video

Thank you so much for your reply. So do you think the author of the
pattern means purl when she writes pull? I’ve never seen it written that
way before but I can’t find any other explanation for it…

Thanks again :slight_smile:

Ah, I thought that might be autocorrect when you typed your question. Yes, I would assume it means purl 2 tog but you could contact the designer to be absolutely sure. If it’s anything other than purl 2 tog I would expect the pattern to define it since it’s non-standard.

What is the name of the pattern?

Thank you again for your time. It’s called Onyx scarf. I did contact the
designer (the Velvet Acorn) for clarification for the stitch and because
it’s not a decrease, and this was her response:

You will be knitting 2 together and pulling 2 together in the same 2
stitches and these will off set each other keeping the stitch count the
same :wink:

This one?

The pdf says to “…[k2tog through the back loop, bring yarn to front, p2tog] all in the next stitch together…”

I’d read “purl” for “pull”. Really great looking scarf that should be fun to work.

This project discusses the stitch and has a photo:

Yes, that’s it! Thank you soooo much, the explanation on Ravelry makes much
more sense! I’m excited to make this now. I really appreciate all of your
time and help with this!!

Have a great weekend and Merry Christmas!
