How to Change Colors in Crochet
STEP 1: When you are working a crochet project and are ready to change colors simply continue the last stitch, but before you yarn over for the last time stop using the current color you are working with and drop it. It was orange for me (see picture)
STEP 2: Grab your new color (blue for me) you are changing to and lay it on top of your crochet hook. Leave the previous color alone! 🙂
STEP 3: Pull the blue through the two orange loops, turn your project, chain 1 (since I am using single crochets) you would chain two if working with double crochets or 3 if working with triple crochets
STEP 4: You have officially learned how to change colors in crochet! !! YEAH!! Continue working your pattern as stated.
Update: I have had some questions about what color yarns I used for this tutorial.
