60 Second Knitting Tutorial – Saddle Shoulder, Paired Decrease Method


What is it?

A saddle shoulder is a shape where the top of the shoulder is flat and sits perpendicular to the stitches at the front and back of the body.  The paired decrease method is one way to create this shape, by working back and forth across the top of shoulder stitches, decreases one stitch with each pass.

Where Do I Use it?

The paired decrease saddle shoulder method is one of my current favourites for shoulder decreases.  It can be used on its own, or in combination with other shoulder decrease approaches, for example in the Sunset at the Lake Top.
