Making 2 Back Post double crochet around 2 stitches together.
For many people as soon as they see together or tog they assume a decrease.
This stitch does not create a decrease.
It always amazes me how our brain can go into auto pilot, and rather than read the actual words we assume what we are seeing.
When we make a decrease the abbreviation will often be something like this – sc2tog – dc3tog etc.
This stitch is 2 back post double crochet around the next 2 stitches together.
It can also be made with back post trebles.
The important thing to remember is that you will make 2 stitches around the posts of 2 stitches.
1. Yarn over, insert hook around the back posts of the next 2 stitches.
2. Yarn over, pull up a loop and complete the back post double crochet.
3. Yarn over, insert hook around the back posts of the same 2 stitches, ensuring you are working below the 1st stitch.
