What does knit over purl mean?

What does knit 2 together mean?
Knit two together is the most basic method of decreasing stitches. It makes a decrease that slants slightly to the right and is often abbreviated as K2Tog or k2tog in patterns. To “knit two together” is just like making a regular knit stitch, but you work through two stitches instead of just one.
