How to crochet a sc2tog (decrease)
This stitch decreases your stitch count by 1. It’s a pretty standard decrease used in a lot of patterns.
Popular for decreases in hat, bags, toes of slippers and socks, or when working on blankets that are crocheted corner to corner (C2C).
Step 1: Insert hook into the next space.
Step 2: Yarn over and pull through. There are 2 loops on your hook.
Step 3: Insert your hook into the next space and yarn over. There are 3 loops on your hook.
Step 4: Yarn over one final time and pull through the 3 loops on your hook. You have now decreased your stitch count by 1 and completed your sc2tog.
About the Instructor: Andi Gallegos
Andi Gallegos- aka Mysistersknitter on Ravelry- learned to first crochet more than 20 years ago from a coworker, while looking for a way to occupy herself during downtime at a call center job. A couple of years later after many attempts to teach herself to knit from books, she found a video that taught kids to knit and it suddenly clicked. Nowadays it is rare for a day to go by without at least one stitch being knit.
At that time living and knitting in sunny Arizona didn’t warrant a large knitting community, so Andi started a blog called My Sister’s Knitter as a way to connect with other knitters.
Andi believes that if everyone knit or crocheted the world would be a kindler, gentler place.
About the Instructor: Jody Richards
Jody loves pouring over stitch dictionaries and trying out new stitches. And while she likes all things crafting (well ok, except that one thing), yarn crafts are her true love (and she has the stash to prove it).
She’s a serial starter-of-projects and has a serious problem with finishing things without a deadline.
And don’t get her talking about hand-dyed yarns. You’ve been warned.
