It’s Learn a New Thing Thursday! Is that a thing? Can I make it one? I’m going to. 🙂
Today I want to show you how to crochet the single crochet decrease, aka in pattern speak as sc2tog.
Decrease stitches are a way to eliminate stitches in your work and to give it shape. The word “decrease” typically refers to working two stitches together, but it is possible to work more than 2 stitches together using the same methodology. Today, I’ll be showing you how to work two stitches together using single crochet. I promise it isn’t as hard as it sounds, and once you get practiced, you’ll use it for creating all kinds of shapes, whether working flat as in my swatch here or in the round.
Following the photo tutorial is a video tutorial, just in case you need to see it in action.
If you want to see this stitch in action, I’ve recorded a video tutorial for you as well!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If there’s a stitch you’d like to see me make a tutorial for, let me know in the comments below!
Until next time!
