Invisible Single-Crochet Decrease
Over the years, lots of people have asked me if I know of a way to make decreases less pronounced in amigurumi (those adorable dolls). Unfortunately, I had no tips to give except to work those sc2togs very tightly. But now I'm very pleased to have a better answer!
June over at Planetjune has a great tutorial for how to make an invisible decrease in single crochet. Go check it out, it works beautifully.
(And if you're inclined, join us in Groundhog-along 2010, eh? Part homage to our prognosticating furry friend, part love affair with that Bill Murray movie, it's fun for everyone. June designed the groundhog pattern and pointed us to the invisible decrease. It's a technique I'm sure I'll employ often.)
