Single crochet two together (sc2tog) Tutorial

To decrease in crochet is to eliminate one or more stitches. An external decrease is worked at the beginning or end of a row, at the side edge. Internal decreases, like single crochet two together, are worked within the row. Generally you’ll find decrease instructions in an individual pattern to suite the particular stitch being worked, but here are the basics on how to single crochet two together (sc2tog).
