basic decreases ... knit 2 together, purl 2 together
There are so few good patterns for men! In general men don't like lace but that shouldn't mean knitting for them should be boring. Here's a scarf that's an old-fashioned sampler of lots of different stitch patterns. Manly stitch patterns with texture and interest. And they're basic easy-to-do stitches, too!!
