So for double crochet two together, we’re going to take two stitches and turn it into one stitch. That’s what’s going to make our decrease. So we are going to do most of the double crochet stitch on the first one and then move to the second one.
To start yarn over, insert the hook as normal, yarn over, and then draw through a loop so there are three loops on the hook. Then yarn over and draw through two.
This is where the stitch begins to differ from a typical double crochet stitch. Normally if we were going to finish the stitch, we would yarn over and pull through the last two loops. Instead, we are going to move on to the next stitch.
Yarn over and go into the next stitch, then yarn over and pull through a loop so there are four loops on the hook. Now, yarn over and draw through two, then yarn over and draw through all three loops to finish the stitch.
