I'm starting the last phase of my challenge project and this is the first time I've come accross a pattern with tog (together) in the instructions. How exactly do I interpret this? Here's an excerpt from my pattern:

"HEEL - ALL Stitches are through BOTH LOOPS.

ROW 1 - 1 sc in first sc at the base of ch 1, (remember, ch 1 doesn't count in the stitch count) 1 sc in next 13 sc, ch 1, turn.
ROWS 2 to 6 - Same as Row 1.
ROW 7 - 1 sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc tog (twice), 1 sc in next 5 sc, ch 1, turn. (12 sc)"

Would I read row 7 to be 1 sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc together in the same sc (then again in the next sc)?

My pattern can be found at http://www.crochetandknitting.com/babysock.htm

TIA!

SC 2 tog uses 2 SC. It doesn't mean 2 SC in the same stitch. That would be a SC increase and you would end up with 14 SC instead of 12.


It means that you are going to SC into the next 5 SC, then insert your hook into the next
