Video: 12 days of crochet: Double crochet 2 together (dc2tog) [Day 8]

How to crochet video: Double crochet 2 together

Double crochet 2 together
Abbreviation: dc2tog

This technique is a neat little way to decrease and shape your crochet.

Push hook into stitch, yarn round hook and pull through stitch, you’ll have 2 loops on hook.

Push hook into next stitch, yarn round hook and pull through stitch, you’ll have 3 loops on hook…

Lastly wrap yarn round hook once more and pull through all 3 loops to finish the stitch.

Watch the video to see how it’s done…
