Welcome to my Crochet Decrease Stitches Guide! I created this Guide to common Decrease stitches to accompany my Cookies and Milk Crochet Pattern. More details about this pattern are below, or you can read all about it in the Blog Article HERE.

You will find some of these crochet decrease stitches more often than others. Sc2tog is most common, and you will find it frequently used in making amigurumi and other toys. The Hdc and Dc Crochet Decrease Stitches may be found in patterns such as Ripple or Chevon Blankets, and in hats worked from the bottom up, just to name a few. Read on below for the tutorials!

These decrease stitches are all used in the creation of the Crochet Cookies from my fun new Cookies and Milk Crochet Pattern, Yum! Well, actually Dc3tog is not part of the pattern, but it seemed weird to not include that crochet decrease stitch too, so I did! 🙂 The Heart Cookie in particular, utilizes these stitches, the other elements just the sc decreases. Read all about this new pattern on My Blog HERE <– or click HERE –> to find the Cookies and Milk Pattern on Ravelry. 🙂
