Decreasing
Name: Decrease
Abbreviated as: dec

Similar to learning how to increase... as you progress with your crochet you'll venture into playing around with all sorts of shapes and patterns.
Knowing how to decrease the number of stitches in a row will help you to achieve these shapes.

Decreasing is simply working a stitch over the space of two (or more) stitches from the previous round. This means you end up with fewer stitches in this round, compared to the number of stitches in the previous round.

In the video below we will show you how simple decreasing can be.
