Sometimes patterns, especially older patterns, will tell you to decrease without specifying which decrease to use. Or you may be working a pattern where you think a different decrease will work better than the one the pattern calls for. In this video, I compare three popular decreases side-by-side so you can see the differences.
The bulky yarn I used for demonstration is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in Yonder.
The needles I’m using are Knitter’s Pride Nova Platinas, from an interchangeable set.
The nail polish I’m wearing is by Julep, color “Amanda”.
My silver ring is actually a knitting needle gauge, and can be found here.
