Hi Happy Sunday, I for now just want to know HOW to do rib2tog.

It depends on the rib, 1x1 or 2x2 etc and also which stitch you would like to have on top in the decrease. Often you can knit2tog or purl2tog.

The pattern says to Rib2, rib2tog, yrn, (rib 16, rib2tog, yon, rib 16, rib2tog, yrn) twice, rib 2

OK, so if it’s k1p1 rib you would k1, p1, k2tog, yrn to start. You should be able to use k2tog throughout assuming it’s k1p1 rib.
What is the name of your pattern?

Sorry, I should have been more clearer. It it 2x2 rib. The name of the pattern is jacket in Sierra Snuggly DK.

*it is

The row will be K2, p2tog, yrn, (rib 16, k2tog, yon, rib 16, k2tog, yrn) twice, rib 2 assuming it begins with k2 of the k2p2 rib. It’s going to be either purl together the p2 or k together the k2 which is a nice way to work the decreases.
This is likely to be at the transition from ribbing to the main pattern stitch. The instructions are distributing the decreases along the row.

Thank you so much! It so much easier to understand when you write it this way. :yellow_heart::yellow_heart::yellow_heart:
