This is Jess from In this video, I’ll show you how to create an Invisible Finish for your amigurumi projects.

This is the first step to making perfect color transitions when you’re done using a particular color in your piece.

Once you’ve completed the final round for the color you’re using and won’t be needing that color again, cut your working yarn, leaving a tail of about six inches.

Pull the loop from your last stitch until the yarn tail comes free, then thread the end through a yarn needle.

We are going to be creating a fake stitch over the first stitch of the round. Insert the needle through the second stitch of the round.

Now insert the needle under the back loop only of the final stitch of the round.

Pull on the tail, and you’ll see how it creates a fake stitch almost indistinguishable from the others in the round.

Secure the tail with a knot inside the work, then snip the tail short.
