This decrease is a left-leaning, double decrease, where you slip one stitch as if to purl, p2tog, and then pass the slipped stitch over the p2tog. This decrease turns three stitches into one (decreasing two). One stitch is decreased in the p2tog and one by passing the slipped stitch over. It is the purl version of the SK2P, slip one stitch, k2tog, pass slipped stitch over.
Working an SP2P
