Strange way of decreasing a stitch
(Isle of Man)
Please could you translate the following please?
“Knit to last 9 stitches, slip 2 sts separately onto right hand needle, then knit 2 sts tog as if you were working a K2tog (neck edge), k7.”
What I don’t get is if slip 2 stitches onto right hand needle, then K2tog, I only have 5 stitches to knit not 7. I’m thinking it’s got something to do with the slip 2 and then K2tog.
