Mastering the Art of the Invisible Crochet Increase

Mastering the Art of the Invisible Crochet Increase

So you’re crocheting a fabulous hat, shaping a sweater or creating an adorable little amigurumi, but your increases are leaving a lot to be desired!! We've all experienced the frustration of trying to hide those pesky increase bumps and holes, but fear not – the Invisible Increase will provide a seamless solution that melds effortlessly into your work, leaving only a tiny hint of its presence.

Unraveling the Mystery: The Invisible Increase Revealed

1. At the point of the increase, insert your crochet hook into the front loop only of the next stitch. Keep this loose and even, don’t pull too tight.

2. Yarn over and pull through a loop, yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook to complete a regular double crochet.

3. Remember that stitch you just worked into? We're heading back into it, but this time inserting your hook through both loops.

4. Yarn over and pull through a loop, yarn over once more and pull through both loops on your hook. Another dc and a seamless increase that's (almost) undetectable!

This increase works with any stitch, so you could try a treble or half treble too.

Your crochet project will thank you for this elegant and sophisticated touch. So, the next time you need to double your stitch, remember the Invisible Increase! This technique will add another string to your crochet bow.

Happy Crocheting!
