Find out how to make your crochet piece pop by adding a new color
Changing color in your crochet project can be a lot of fun, whether you are using large stripes or pops of contrast. In this step by step video tutorial we will show you how to change colors at the beginning and in the middle of a row.
To add a new colour at the beginning of the row: Work the last stitch of the row with the old colour, turn your work.
Cut the old yarn and pull on the last stitch until the end pops through, like in the image example to the left.
Insert the hook into the first stitch, scoop up the new colour and pull it through. You now have a loop of the new colour on your hook.
Work with the new colour to make your turning chain.
Continue working with the new colour.
To add a new colour in the middle of a row: Add the new colour on the stitch BEFORE where you want the colour change.
Start your stitch in the regular way using the old colour, but stop before working the final wrap-around:
Insert the hook, loop your yarn, pull the yarn through and then stop!
Loop the new colour around the hook, leaving a long tail.
Pull the yarn through the remaining two loops to finish the stitch.
Continue working with the new colour. And that's it! Hope you had fun learning how to join a new color to your crochet project. Keep exploring our 'how to' tutorial videos to pick up new skills!
