Learning how to decrease crochet stitches opens up your crochet world to a host of possibilities. We can work and mold yarn into virtually any shape. The concepts in this tutorial are written for the single crochet stitch, but they can easily be replaced with any crochet stitch and in a pattern will be written in the same format. We write a 1 stitch single crochet decrease as sc2tog. If we were to decrease 1 stitch in double crochet, it would be written as dc2tog and so on. The tutorial below is a follow up to our How to Increase Crochet Stitches for Beginners tutorial, so make sure to check that out before proceeding.
