Learn how to crochet a sc2tog (single crochet 2 stitches together) decrease with this quick video tutorial from Oombawka Design Crochet.
How to Crochet a sc2tog
- Insert your hook into the specified stitch, yarn over the hook and pull up 1 loop. You will have 2 loops on your hook.
- Insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over the hook and pull up 1 loop. You will have 3 loops on your hook.
- Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook to complete your sc2tog.
A sc2tog is the abbreviation used for single crochet 2 together. It is used to combine two stitches together to create a single stitch. This will decrease your stitch count by 1. It is a crochet term used in US crochet patterns. For UK crochet patterns this would be known as a dc2tog.
TIP: Some patterns (like amigurumi) may only ask you to decrease (dec) and if you are using sc stitches this would mean the same as a sc2tog.
