Dc2tog (Double crochet 2 together): Yo, pull up a loop in indicated st, yo and draw through 2 loops twice, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook
Fdc (foundation double crochet): Ch 3 (counts as first fdc). Yo and pull up a loop in 3rd ch from hook, yo and pull through 1 loop creating a sl st, (this is an important step but easy to forget), yo and draw though 2 loops (2 loops rem), yo and draw through last 2 loops. This completes the 2nd fdc (the initial 3 ch counted as the first. * Yo and pull up a loop in sl st made with last fdc, yo and pull through 1 loop creating a sl st, yo and draw though 2 loops, yo and draw through last 2 loops; rep from * to desired number of fdc.
OPTIONAL SPECIAL STITCHES
CSDC (Chainless Starting Double Crochet): If working in rows, turn work. If working in rounds spin hook completely around, making a twist in the loop. Pull up a loop to the height of a normal dc. YO with the loop so that the hook is behind the loop. Insert the hook into the first st of row. Compete a normal dc (YO and draw through st (3 loops on hook). YO and draw through first two loops on hook. YO and draw through last two loops on hook). Here is a fantastic tutorial by Moogly
SDC (Standing Double Crochet): Begin with slip knot on hook, YO, insert hook in stitch, and work like a normal dc (YO, draw through first two loops, YO, draw through last two loops).
• The ch 3 at the beg of each row will count as the first dc. This means that the next dc you make should be placed in the 2nd st, EXCEPT in the hood, where an additional dc will be placed in the first dc. This will be specified within the pattern.
• Stripe to your heart’s delight! You can do color changes any way that works best for you.
• Make color changes anyway you see fit. I prefer to fasten off with one color and to begin with a new color.
• Color changes on sleeves can be made using a SDC (see OPTIONAL SPECIAL STITCHES)
