How To Crochet – Single Crochet 2 Stitches Together (SC2TOG)


hi this lesson is about how to do how to
work stitches together for example if you
have a pattern that says single crochet 2 together or a pattern that says double
crochet three together this lesson is to give you a little bit
of insight into how you actually work stitches together we’re only going to
chain about ten here so that we can get the idea of what to do one two three four five six seven eight
nine ten actually I want to go one more for the
turning chain as a single crochet keep in mind i am assuming
that you do have the basics of you know single crochet or double crochet in
these videos if not please go back and learn the basic stitches on my video
channel the link is provided and then come back to this so that you can then
build upon the skills that you’ve learned so here for this row i’m going to do a
single crochet together i’m going to do two single crochet together which is
usually it’s a decrease its to reduce the number of stitches that you have
currently we have 10 stitches so I’m going to in the second chain from the
hook i’m going to do a single crochet 2
together so what happens is i insert the hook and
I work one single and I pull the loop up here and leave it on the hook and then i’m
going to insert the hook once more into the next stitch and then
pull up a loop and leave on the hook and then i’m going to yarn over and pull
through all three that way I just reduced my number by 1
i’m going to do that again so that you can get the idea that is how you
single crochet 2 together and you do the same if it’s three or four you just
insert the number of times that they tell you in your pattern to reduce the
stitches so this is a single crochet 2 together so we insert the hook into the
chain yarn over and pull up a loop for the first single crochet is normally we
create a single crochet here but because we want to do together we’re going to leave it on the hook
insert the hook into the next chain which is chained number two yarn over
and pull up a loop so now we have to crochet two single
crochet that we would have done that we’re going to do together then we yarn
over and pull through all three loops on the hook and that is how you single crochet 2
together don’t worry i’m going to do another and
so that you can see insert the hook in the chain yarn over pull up a loop for
the first single crochet insert the hook yarn over and pull up a loop for the
second single crochet then pull yarn over and pull the yarn through all three
loops on the hook i’m going to show you what happens at
the end when you single crochet 2 together in order to reduce the number
of stitches because you remember we started with 11 we changed 11 but we actually started
with 10 stitches the last one being the turning chain and so now we are single
crocheting 2 together all the way across our chain so when you get to the end we’re going
to change for the turning chain what you will see is that you have one
two three four five stitches instead of 10 you’ve reduced your the number of
stitches that you have and that is to do the single crochet 2 together but as i
said before if you it’s the same thing you’re going to do
if you want a single crochet 3 together four single crochet for together you simply insert the hook as many times
as you want to reduce the stitches so if it says single crochet three together
then what we’re going to do is we’re going to go one two three and then we
pull through all three and it reduces it that way so that is how you do a single crochet
two or three together but that is how you reduce your numbers when you’re
doing a single crochet pattern if you have any questions please feel
