How to: Centred Double Decrease

Centred Double Decrease, CDD or sl2kp2*, is something I use often in my patterns and is a very nice double decrease that's truly centred; perfect for when you need a prominent vertical running along the fabric. Here's how to:

Insert your right needle into the first two sts from left to right and slip them onto the right needle together (they will appear rearranged on your right needle and this step is intentional)

pass the two slipped stitches over the knit stitch, together
the finished double decrease with the centre stitch on top
*This decrease is often referred to as sl2kp2 or s2kp2 = slip 2, knit, pass 2 [over]
