what "make 1 sc together on 2 stitches" means?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm new to crochet and decided to give as a birthday present an amigurumi scorpion! May the gods be with me. I was doing ok until I stumbled across the pattern: make 1 sc together on 2 stitches. From my search, I thought it meant sc2tog. I'm supposed to do 6 rings like this and after two I am out of space. So I am guessing "make 1 sc together on 2 stitches" means a different thing. Can somebody help me? Thank you

Welcome to the 'ville!  It sounds like sc2tog (decrease) to me too; maybe the pattern writer was not a native English speaker?  The only other thing that combination of words could mean is make 2 stitches into 1 (increase), "2 new stitches together into 1 old stitch to add a stitch" versus "2 old stitches combined into 1 new stitch to decrease a stitch".

Do the rows give a stitch count at the end of the row? Can you tell what part of the bug you are making--are you finishing the top of the head perhaps, or it's waist where you would want to almost run out of stitches?  Or is it a spot where it gets wider?  Sometimes looking closely at the pattern photo helps to figure out what confusing bits are trying to convey.

It sounds like sc2together to me as well. As above asked, is there a stitch count noted per row?  That really helps when you get confused. It’s a little hard for me to know without seeing the pattern or what you’re working on
