Sharing is caring!

Learn how to single crochet two together. This post includes a photo tutorial for how to sc2tog crochet two stitches together. Plus there’s a video tutorial demonstrating how to single crochet 2 stitches together too.

Single crochet two together is a common crochet technique that is used to decrease the number of stitches. It is commonly abbreviated as sc2tog in written crochet patterns.

Single crochet decrease is also another wording I’ve seen for this stitch. For this quick photo tutorial I’ve used a length of chain, but you can single crochet any two stitches together with this way.
