Every type of decrease stitch will reduce the number of stitches on your needle, but depending on your stitch pattern, certain types of decreases tend to look nicer than others. This can be especially true for fancy stitches or raglan sleeve shaping, where decreasing might be necessary on wrong side rows. For a demonstration of some of the decreases you might come across while working a decorative stitch, watch our new how-to video, then try out your new skills with a pattern like Meta, Taku, or Giulia. If you find the video helpful, be sure to check out our how-to video library for more helpful tips.
