How To Double Crochet Two Together (dc2tog)


 The double crochet two together or dc2tog is a common decrease that is easy to do.  It makes a neat and smooth transition when shaping things like hats and lots more!  Below is a step by step photo tutorial, plus a full video tutorial too!

(I'm using worsted weight yarn and a 5.0 mm H crochet hook here, but you can use this for any yarn and hook)

Step 1: Wrap yarn around hook and insert hook into stitch.
Step 2: Wrap yarn around hook and bring up a loop (3 loops on the hook).
Step 3: Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops (two loops on the hook).
Step 4: Wrap yarn around hook.


Step 5: Insert hook into the next stitch and bring up a loop (four loops on the hook).
Step 6: Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through the first two loops (three loops on the hook).
Step 7: Wrap yarn around hook and bring it through all three loops.
All finished!
