Instructions for working this stitch:
Cast-on an even number of stitches.
Row 1: *K2tog tbl, dropping only the first stitch off your needle,* rep from * to last st, ktbl.
Row 2: *P2tog, dropping only the first stitch off your needle,* rep from * to last st, p.
Repeat these rows to desired length, then bind-off while working a right-side row, pulling one stitch over the other every time you have two stitches on the right needle.
In the video, I mention a pattern available from Purl Soho which gives you a pattern for working this stitch in-the-round. You can find that pattern here.
