Ordinarily, when you work rows of afghan stitch (Tunisian simple stitch), you insert your hook into the next vertical bar, wrap the yarn around your crochet hook and pull up a loop. If you want to decrease in afghan stitch, instead, you’ll insert your crochet hook into TWO vertical bars, then wrap the yarn around your crochet hook and pull the yarn through both the vertical bars. Thus you’ll transform the two stitches into one stitch. You’ll most likely work the return pass as usual after your row is complete unless your pattern says otherwise.
So there you have it: That’s how to decrease in afghan stitch. We hope you find this information helpful.
