How to decrease in double crochet (dc) stitches

In this DROPS video we show how to decrease in double crochet (dc) stitches (or sc in US terms).

When you decrease you can skip one st below, but that may create a hole. To avoid that you can crochet sts together to decrease.

Crochet 2 sts together to 1 stitch: crochet dc in following 2 sts, wait with last pull through on both sts until last one is made, then pull through all sts on hook.
