Paired Double Crochet Stitch Photo Tutorial

The paired double crochet uses the basic double decrease (dc2tog) and chain stitches and after the set up row it has a one-row repeat. One thing I really love about this stitch is all the stitches after row 1 are made into chain spaces rather than in a stitch. I think that is why this stitch is so quick to work up.

Row 1: Dc2tog over 4th and 5th ch from hook. *Ch 1, Dc2tog over next 2 chains. Repeat across until 1 ch remains. Ch 1. Dc in last. Turn. (17 dc2tog)

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc). Dc2tog over first and 2nd ch-1 space. *Ch 1, Dc2tog starting in the same ch-1 space as the last stitch and finishing in the next ch-1 space, repeat from * across working 2nd leg of last dc2tog under the turning ch of previous row.
