Decrease stitch technique

The pattern instructions says "k3 then work the first st over the 2st"

This sounds like a bind off stitch. This row does need a decrease in the pattern as a previous row increased with a yo.

Thank you,

Decrease stitch technique

Hi Jan,

It is like a bind off but not at the end of a row. This will make 1 decrease. You will have 2 sts remains out of those k3.
No worry, it should work out find.

Thanks for sharing your work and question with us.
Take care and have fun knitting.
