How to decrease in dc (US) or tr (UK) in each side

In this DROPS video we show how to decrease when crocheting dc (US term) or tr (UK term).

We are showing how to decrease in the beginning of a row and also at the end of a row when crocheting dc (UK tr).
In our example we are dec 3 sts each side of work.
Dec as follows at beg of row: replace first 3 sts with 1 sl st in each. Then work a sl st in next st and then ch 3, the ch 3 replaces 1st dc (UK tr) on row.
Dec as follows at the end of row: Turn piece when 3 sts remain on row.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where this technique is used by clicking on the pictures below.

The video above can be used in the following patterns

Bonjour Mme Dugand, tout à fait, crochetez des mailles coulées en début de rang et tournez à la fin du rang quand il reste le nombre de mailles à diminuer. Bon crochet!

Madame bonjour.Comment faire diminuer 6ms à intervalles régulier.Merci

Bonjour Laurent, pour calculer quand les dim. doivent être faites, prenez le nbe total de m du rang (ex. 296 m) et divisez le par le nbe de dim à faire (ex par 24): 296/24=12.3. Ainsi, dans cet exemple, on écoule approximativement chaque 11ème et 12ème m ens. Bon crochet!

Hello, please be so kind to explain what exactly is meant by "Crochet in each dc (not in between)". Thank you!

DROPS Design 16.10.2014 - 14:10:

Dear Doina, this means to insert crochet below both loops from st on previous row and not only in front or back loop of this st. Happy crocheting!
