Skill Level - Easy
SC - Single Crochet
CH - Chain
SL ST - Slip Stitch
FLO - Front Loop Only
SC DEC FLO - Single Crochet Decrease Front Loop Only
FLO - There are two loops at the top of the stitch. You will work in the front loop. This is the FLO of Front Loop Only.
SC DEC FLO - Insert your hook through the front loop only, wrap the yarn over, pull it through. Insert your hook through the next stitch FLO, wrap the yarn over, pull it through. There are 3 loops on your hook, wrap the yarn over pull through all 3 loops. This completes the single crochet decrease through the front loop only. Each single crochet decrease will count as one single crochet. We are reducing two stitches, down to one stitch.
