What is sc2tog?

sc2tog stands for "single crochet 2 together." It's a decrease stitch that works by combining two single crochet stitches into one. To crochet sc2tog, you'll need to insert your hook into the first stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Then, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Yarn over again and pull through all 3 loops on your hook. This will complete the sc2tog stitch.

What crochet hook size should you use?

The crochet hook size will depend on the yarn you're using. A good rule of thumb is to use a hook size that is one or two sizes smaller than the recommended size on the yarn label. This will help to create a tighter stitch that will hold its shape better.You can check a variety of hook sizes here
