What does VDD mean in knitting directions?

I am working on the Ruffled Rose Scarf as seen below…


In the stitches it says to: Yo, VDD, K2P2. I have NO idea what VDD means? Can someone please help me? Thank you so much.

That is a very pretty pattern…I hadn’t heard of VDD either but found thiswhen searching for it…it’s in her Combo Corset pattern too (link takes you to diy:knitty gritty)

[B]VDD (vertical double decrease)[/B] Slip 2 sts as if to K2tog, k1, pass slipped sts over the knit st.

This video may also help.

You are both so sweet. Thank you so much. I had no idea what the initials even stood for let alone how to do them…now I do!! :muah:

That’s also known as a CDD - centered double decrease. The middle stitch of the 3 is on top, so it’s centered. Other decs, single or double, lean to the left or right.

I was going to say the same thing…knitty gritty episode. it’s one of my favorites.
