Ok, I'm fairly new to crochet and have just come across "dc2tog" in the pattern I'm working on. I searched on the net, but cannot just seem to get it, like how to actually do it... does anyone know how to make it a bit clearer to me, or else point out a good tutorial on it?

Thanks, I just feel so dumb right now  Sad

to dc2tog when you're working in single crochet (sc) you:
place hook through next stitch yarn over (yo) draw through stitch (you've half completed the sc) now do the same on the next stitch, the result is three loops on your hook. Now yo and pull through all loops... hope that makes sense.
