Rule #6: Never start a project without at least two hooks in the required size.
Rule #7: No coffee within 10 feet of yarn, projects, patterns or critical paperwork.
Rule #8: Block that puppy.
Rule #9: If the hook is not moving easily and smoothly in and out of the stitches, you are crocheting too tightly. Relax.

Rule #13: Cut yarn only when absolutely unavoidable (see special circumstance Rule #19).

Rule #18: Yarn sometimes lies.

Rule #21: Read the fracking pattern.
Rule #22: The pattern could be wrong.

Crochet Gif Tutorials: Invisible Decrease
The invisible decrease is slightly more difficult than the standard decrease, but it can look great in amigurumi projects - because you can’t see it’s there!
This stitch works in the front loops of the stitches only, which you should be able to see clearly in the first gif.
(P.S. You might notice that the stitch I end up with in this tutorial is very loose. This was so that I could clearly illustrate the technique. Try to crochet a lot tighter than this if you can, especially if you’re using this stitch for amigurumi.)
pattern for the cute flowers :)
