If you know how to do a K2tog TBL, you can slip a stitch and do a PSSO, then you know how to do a K3tog TBL.
It’s really quite easy and I’ll show you how!
3 Ways to Do a K3tog TBL: Just 3 Easy Steps!
Method 1: One Slipped stitch
Step 1: Slip one stitch purlwise. That means, you just insert your needle from right to left and the stitch remains mounted the same way as it was.
Step 2: Knit the next 2 stitches together TBL (through the back loops). That means you insert the needle from right to left but through TWO stitches.
Step 3: PSSO (all on the RIGHT needle, use your left needle and pass the second stitch over the first).
Method 2: Two slipped stitches
Step 1: Slip two stitches purlwise. That means, you just insert your needle from right to left and the stitch remains mounted the same way as it was.
Step 2: Knit the next stitch THROUGH THE BACK LOOP. That means, you insert the needle from right to left.
Step 3: Pass the TWO stitches over the one you just made in the previous step.
Method 3: Use a Crochet Hook
You can do this with either method. Just use a crochet hook to pass the stitches over. Here it is when there are 2 stitches to be passed over. It works the same way with one.
You’re done with the K3TOG TBL!
Look at how great it is!
