Centred Double Decrease

VIDEO TUTORIAL

I like using a centred double decrease when I want I nice vertical line. It’s a decrease that uses three stitches to create one stitch, thus eliminating two stitches.

This decrease can be found in the lace pattern on Stormwatch.

Eventide also has centred double decreases in the dips of the chevron stitch pattern.
