I know how to do ssk, but recently needed to decrease on a purl row. Is there a way to do this? or does one just purl 2 together? It didn't look to me as if there was a noticable difference between edges when purling as there is in decreasing on a knit row.

Just purl two together as a normal purl stitch, it's the way to do it, unless you are advised in the pattern to do it a different way, which would be unusual.

Thanks, Lenora. It looked like it was OK to do that. Just wondered if I was missing something.

Actually there are two techniques to do this making the resulting stitch slant differently like the ssk and the k2tog also slants left, or right.
Here is a video showing you how.

There is a site call Stitch a Day knitting. He has videos on different stitches. The one this week was called the Reverse purl decrease. You might like to see it as a different technique to use.

WOW! I've been knitting for over 50 years, and there is always, always something new to learn. Thank you all so much.

Actually I gave the name of the stitch video site a bit wrong. It is called New Stitch A Day and is a video site.
