I am trying to make a pair of baby no thumb mittens using no pattern. I want to decrease quickly at the top so I need to decrease on both the knit and the purl sides. I cannot get the right and left leaning decreases to work on the purl side. Can someone help me with what decreases I should use?

K2 tog on right side, P 2 tog on wrong side.
SSK on right side, P 2 tog through back loops on wrong side.

Just check to make sure that the top stitches of each decrease pair are aligned correctly.

I agree with Beachgirl. Use k2tog/p2tog for the right-leaning. For the left-leaning use ssk/p2togtbl.
