Many popular patterns utilize double decreases – when you decrease two stitches at a time. Just like other decreases, there are different ways of doing them so they lean or align just how you want!
Slip 2 stitches as if to knit, K1, PSSO
This double decrease is used a lot as a center spine to mitered squares or shawls, hat decreases, and raglan sweater decreases.
Slip 2 as if to knit, slip1 as if to knit, hold the stitches in the front and knit them through the back loop.
This is also a centered decrease, but isn't as common as the Center Double Decrease.
Left leaning double decrease. This turns 3 stitches into one left leaning stitch, the opposite of k3tog.
Right leaning double decrease. This turns 3 stitches into one right leaning stitch, the opposite of SSSK.
