Are you ready to elevate your crochet? The beautifully neat invisible decrease is the perfect way to neaten up your stitches and take your skills to the next level. It’s a gripe we’ve all had – increases and decreases are handy tools that add shaping to your work, but there’s no getting around it – they can be bulky and well…a bit ugly sometimes. So, this new stitch tutorial will show you how to banish the bulk and create even, neat decreases that are invisible! It’s like a crochet magic trick!

    Thank you so much for the video on invisible decrease. It was very helpful to see it, then read it, and then complete it myself. It really does make a big difference in my crocheting when decreasing. Thanks again.
