Single crochet Invisible Decrease [ 2-sc inv dec]
Please note that when making the invisible decrease you will be working in the front loops
only of your two stitches.
Insert your hook into the front loop only of the first stitch. Do not yarn over and pull up yarn
as you would in a traditional decrease. Insert your hook into the front loop only of the next
stitch. You will need to turn the tip of your crochet hook downward to do this. Then swing
your crochet hook up, and under the front loop of the 2nd stitch. You now have three loops on
your hook. Yarn over and pull the yarn through the first 2 loops on your crochet hook,
leaving two loops on your hook. Then yarn over again and pull yarn through the last two loops
on your crochet hook.
Insert the hook in next stitch and draw up loop (2 loops on hook). Drop the first colour, yo
with new colour and draw through 2 loops on hook. Continue with the new colour. When
working stripes keep each colour attached until you need it again then just pick up the
dropped colour and continue.

of scs for your first round. For example, if the pattern calls for six scs, then sc six times into
