Invisible Decrease for Amigurumi


Take your amigurumi to the next level with the invisible decrease! Say goodbye to unsightly holes, bumps and ugly stitches.

To work the invisible decrease (abbreviation: invdec) you must be familiar with the front loops and back loops of stitches. Normally when crocheting amigurumi you insert your hook under both loops of the stitches but when it comes to the invisible decrease you will be using the front loops only.

INVISIBLE DECREASE

  1. Insert hook in the front loop of the next 2 stitches (3 loops on hook).
  2. Yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook).
  3. Yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.

Invisible decrease complete!

Insert hook into the front loop of the first stitch. Insert hook into the front loop of the next stitch (3 loops on hook).

Yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook). Yarn over and pull through both loops on hook. Invisible decrease complete.

And that’s how to do the invisible decrease! It’s really very simple once you get the hang of it and your decreases will be barely noticeable.
