    1. Deepali. This is describing two stitches decreased to just one.
      I'm a beginner by this is how I remember it.
      Hook through, yarn over, hook back through, hook through next stitch, yarn over, pull back through.
      You now have three loops on the hook, so yarn over and pull through all three loops.
      Hope this helps.
