Most knitters are familiar with the right slanted decrease created by K2tog (knit two together), but what happens when you need your decrease to lean to the left? Or better yet, you need a left slanted decrease while working a row of purls? That is where the Left Slant Purl Decrease comes in to save the day!
I admit, I never found myself in desperate need of a left slanted decrease, that is, not until I was designing my Tejon Bandana Cowl. This decrease pairs beautifully with K2tog-tbl (knit two together through back loop) or SSK (Slip Slip Knit).
