So, when you do a sc decrease do you just skip the hole or do you sc the next 2 stitches together by drawing the loop through and moving onto the next stitch, doing a single crochet drawing through three loops instead of the normal 2?
I have been trying to decipher some Japanese patterns myself and I was under the impression the "o" (open circle) stood for a chain (like ch 1). I have noticed that in the graphs they use for the rounds that there is usually a - or + with a number indicating increase or decrease.
I know what you are talking about. The book I'm using uses both symbols. The chain symbol is more like an oval "0," while the mystery symbol is more spherical "O."
Thanks for continuing to help me decipher!
