How to Crochet a sc3tog

  1. Insert your hook into the specified stitch, yarn over the hook and pull up 1 loop. You will have 2 loops on your hook.
  2. Insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over the hook and pull up 1 loop. You will have 3 loops on your hook.
  3. Insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up 1 loop. You will have 4 loops on your hook.
  4. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on your hook to complete the decrease.

A sc3tog is the abbreviation used for single crochet 3 together. This is a crochet term used in US crochet patterns. For UK crochet patterns this would be called a dc3tog.

When we work this stitch we transform 3 stitches into a single stitch. This will remove 2 stitches from the number of stitches in the project row.

To see how simple it is to make this decrease stitch watch my very short (less than a minute) video tutorial below:
