P2tog tbl (purl 2 together through back loop)
Insert right hand needle into the next two stitches on the left hand needle through the back loops (the loops farthest from you); wrap yarn around needle in the same way you normally would to purl and purl the two stitches together.
This is the most difficult of all stitches in knitting and will likely make you feel like you are all thumbs! If you cannot seem to complete this, try this instead. P2tog in the normal manner. Instead of placing the completed stitch on the right needle, remove it from the left needle, twist it clockwise by hand, then place the stitch on the right needle.
