Single Crochet Decrease - This is taking two stitches and reducing them down to one stitch. Insert the hook through the first stitch, wrap the yarn over the hook, pull it through, leave the two remaining loops on the hook. Insert the hook through the next stitch, wrap the yarn over the hook and pull it through. There will be 3 loops on the hook. Wrap the yarn over the hook and pull through all 3 loops to complete the single crochet decrease.
