How to Crochet: Invisible Double Crochet Decrease

By Candace – 2 Comments

This stitch replaces your traditional dc2tog when you want something that blends in more with the rest of your project. The invisible double crochet decrease gives your dc2tog the look of a dc and is less bulky than its traditional counterpart.

You can hover over the pictures for a left-handed view.

Yarn over as you normally would for a dc. Then insert your hook into the front loop only of each of the next two stitches.

Yarn over and pull through the two front loops.
