How To Change Colors In Single Crochet
What you'll need
2 colors
Any Weight Yarn
Compatible Hook Size For Your Yarn
Start your single crochet like normal: insert your hook, yo + pull up a loop, but stop there.
1
Drop the first color, pulling it toward you (this helps to prevent tangling).
2
In the new color yo + pull through to finish the sc.
3
Pull gently on the first color to tighten the stitch.
4
Lay both colors of yarn across the top of your stitches. You’ll crochet over them.
5
Insert hook into st and work a sc. Crochet over both yarn tails to secure.
6
To switch colors again, start the sc, before the last move, drop the color & pick up the next color to finish the stitch.
7
You can also let the yarn “float” on the inside, instead of crocheting over it. Just pull it across the back, not too tightly.
8
Tip: Roll a bobbin of yarn for each color change to keep yarn from tangling.
