Learn How To Craft Double Crochet 2 Together
Learn how to craft Double Crochet 2 Together AKA dc2tog and dc dec.
So you’re working on a crochet pattern and you come across a fancy term: dc2tog. What to do? First things first, do not panic! This stitch is much easier than it looks.
The dc2tog, is a common decrease that is easy to do. It makes a neat and easy transition when shaping things like hats and lots more!
When you double crochet two together, you are taking what were two stitches and turning them into just one double crochet stitch.
With the double crochet 2 together, start a double crochet as normal, but only complete half of it. Then, complete a double crochet in the next stitch.
This is also known as a decrease and is very helpful in chevron or ripple patterns – or any pattern with a double crochet decrease.
