How to change colour in crochet
Colours add a new and vibrant dimension to you crochet work. When you add a different colour to your work, the thing to keep in mind is that there are 2 ways to changing colours.
1. Adding colours with a basic knot:
This is easy for beginners because they don’t have to worry about pulling the base thread tight as they work to make those first chains. The down side ,is when you use this method with thick yarn…the knot will protrude a little and the work doesn’t look so smooth. This method is alright with very thin thread..for e.g. #20 onwards to #100.
2. Adding colours without a knot:
This gives your work a seamless quality………the yarn just sort of glides in and is good for all kinds of yarn and thread crochet work.
The knot on the cream yarn will be tucked in but you will feel it if the yarn is thicker.
Adding another colour to a granny square:
The technique is the same. How ever many colours you add to each row….
And that is it…Easy Peasy…..:-D!!
