In this video, I am going to show you how to crochet an invisible decrease for Amigurumi. You may wonder why it is better to use the invisible decrease technique instead of the standard decrease. So before we get started with the video, I will let you in on this ‘not so secret’ secret. 🙂

There are two reasons why I prefer crocheting with the invisible decrease. First reason is to avoid big holes in your work that happen when you use the standard decrease. And the second reason is to minimise the bumbs when decreasing. The invisible decrease method will help to make your work look neater and tighter without big holes and bumps, which is why I follow this simple technique in all of my patterns.
How to Crochet an Invisible Decrease for Amigurumi – Instructions:
In this video I use US crochet terminology.
– insert your hook into the front loop of the first stitch (you will have two loops on the hook)
– immediately insert it again into the front loop of the next stitch (you will have three loops on the hook)
– yarn over and pull the yarn through the first two loops on the hook (you will have two loops left on the hook)
– yarn over and pull the yarn through the remaining two loops on the hook to finish your invisible decrease
