invisible decrease crochet

After learning how to increase, you will need to know how to decrease. Crochet decrease is creating one unique stitch from two previous stitches. You can find two techniques : the classic decrease and the invisible decrease crochet. Personally, I always use the Invisible technique because it’s not more complicated and the result is cleaner. If you want to make amigurumis, I suggest you to make invisible decreases.

The difference between those two techniques is due to the loops of the stitches you use to create to reduction. For a classic decrease, both loops ( front and back ) of each stitch are used. Conversely, only the front loops are used during the so-called ” Invisible ” technique. It is for this reason that it is way less visible in a work.
