Double Crochet Two Together (dc2tog) – just like the title implies you will crochet 2 incomplete double crochet stitches together. It doesn’t matter where the 2 double crochet stitches are made, they can be made in the same stitch (or chain), or they can be crocheted in different stitches, the technique is the same.
Step 1. Make your first incomplete dc: o, insert the hook into the stitch (or chain) and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook). Yo and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook(2 loops on hook). Leave the incomplete dc on the hook.
Step 2. Make another incomplete dc in the same stitch (or chain): yo and insert the hook into the same stitch (or chain) and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), yo and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook (3 loops on hook). You now have 2 incomplete dc stitches on your hook.
Step 3. Time to crochet them together: yo and pull through all 3 loops on the hook. You have now completed a dc2tog stitch.
Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 3ch + 2ch. My starting chain is 29ch.
Row 1: dc2tog in the 6th ch from the hook, ch1, dc2tog in the same chain, *sk2, dc2tog in the next ch, ch1, dc2tog in the same chain*, repeat until you have 2ch left, sk1, dc in the last ch, turn
Row 2: *ch3 (counts as a dc), dc2tog in the ch space from the previous row, ch1, dc2tog in the same ch space*, repeat until you crocheted in the last ch space from the previous row, sk1, dc in the last stitch (which is the top ch of the ch3 you made at the beginning of the row)
Repeat row 2 until you have the required length
