Special Stitches

dc5tog worked as a cluster stitch – this dc5tog is worked to create a cluster rather than to decrease 5 stitches to 1 stitch. The easiest way to remember how to make this is to complete each of the 5 double crochet stitches to the last yarn over and then with all five of them sitting there on your hook – yarn over and pull through the 6 loops on the hook to finish the stitch.

dc5tog: Yarn over the hook and insert hook into the specified stitch, yarn over and pull up 1 loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 of the loop on  your hook. *Yarn over the hook; insert hook into the same stitch. Yarn over and pull up 1 loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 of the loops on your hook** Rep from * to ** 3 more times. You now have 6 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops to finish the stitch.
