Special Stitches

single crochet 2 together (sc2tog)

You can work the sc2tog as normal or, use a technique I use which makes the stitch decrease less visible.

When you work the sc2tog decreases work under the front loop only (it makes the stitch less thick). Insert your hook under the front loop of the next st, then swing your hook towards you to go under the front loop of the next sc. You will now have 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all three loops.

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple: 5 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • Hat Band: ch 1 does not count as a stitch and we do not work into it.
  • Main Hat: Ch 2 to start does not count as a stitch and we do not work into it.
  • Adult: MC: Obsidian and CC: Pomegranate
  • I start each CC round using a standing dc stitch, you can substitute with a sl st if you prefer. 
  • If you begin a CC round with a sl st, replace the first dc of the round with a ch-3.
  • In order to decrease the hat height for the Child size hat, the pattern has been slightly modified from the Adult sizes.
