I am making a sweater with raglan sleeves and I am starting the decreases but don't understand the directions. Row 1 K2b, SSK work even to last 4 stitches, K2tog, K2b
Row 2 P3 work even to last 3 stitches. Repeat these 2 rows.
I don't understand what K2b means. Help!! thanks

Hand raised! I know this one - K2b means Knit two together in the back loop. :-D. I had the same question a few weeks ago. Good Luck

thanks. I haven't knitted for 2 days because I couldn't figure that one out.

The directions for the sweater should have had a list of abbreviations...

Glad you have your answer, though :)

It didn't have that abbreviation.:(( but I need further clarification. Is the K2b knit 2 together in the back loops?

I think it means knit the first and last 2 stitches through the back loop, not knit 2 together, because the ssk and k2tog are your decreases. You don't usually do 2 decreases one after another with a raglan sleeve and not in the first and last stitches of the edge. K2b--Knit those stitches through the back loop instead of the front.

If you look at the picture on the pattern, the two stitches you knit through the back give a twisted stitch pattern to your decreased edges. (don't knit them together)

The one before so that you still have 9 stitches left...:)
