Maybe someone can help me. I have been taught only how to make afghans when I was little. And well I am actually getting used to reading instructions of patterns (since I was taught to make my own afghan patterns) but I am stuck.

I am not sure how to decrease the number of stitches since I am doing the amigurumi dude pattern from crochetme.com

Decrease 6 times evenly, a follows: *Work 2 sc together, sc in each of the next 7 sts.* Repeat from * to * around

Its sounding like pig latin to me...I have figured out the rest of the pattern but I still don't get this part. WOuld anyone be kind enough to help me?

Thank you.

To work 2 sc together (also called a sc decrease) you do this - insert your hook in the first sc, yarn over and pull through, then insert your hook in the next sc, yarn over and pull through.  At this point, you have 3 loops on the hook - yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.  (This makes 2 sc from the round below into one for this round)

Then sc in the next 7 stitches and following the same directions above, sc the next 2 stitches together.  Continue with this pattern until you are done the round.

Hope that helps!
