When you crochet something, adding different colors always makes it a better design and more colorful to enjoy. Knowing how to change color in crocheting is definitely important to know and there are some simple steps that you can use to make it easy to do.

It is important to note that making the color change at the end of the row is the best idea, but if you are doing a pattern, then you can change colors in the middle of the row if needed and do it inconspicuously.

These steps will help ensure that changing color in crocheting is not difficult to do if you just remember them and use them. Here are the steps for making a color change in crocheting.

1. In the back of the fabric so it is easily hidden, you want to tie the old and new yarn. Always leave an end that is at least 4 inches. It is easy to hide the end by working the next couple of stitches over it, or you can weave the ends in later by drawing them through several stitches in one of end rows.

2. To make the color change, you want to work the last stitch made into the old yarn color until there are two loops left on your crocheting hook. The old yarn needs to be on top of the row you are crocheting, and then you want to use the new yarn for finishing the stitch. By doing this you can easily conceal the old yarn. This way is best used for single stitching.

3. When using double crochet or other types of stitches, you can easily pull the new yarn into the fabric ahead of the next stitch you will be making. Then be sure to pull the yarn into the top loops of the last stitch you made and keep working with the new color. Again, be sure the ends are left to be around 4 inches and work them into the stitches or weave them in later.

Now that you know how to change color in crocheting, you can see that it is not as hard to do as most people believe it is. With a little practice, you will become an old hand at it in no time. Plus, whatever you crochet will just more beautiful, colorful and interesting over time. Just remember to take your time so you can be sure you are doing it right from the start.

Summary: When you crochet something, adding different colors always makes it a better design and more colorful to enjoy. Knowing how to change color in crocheting is definitely important to know and there are some simple steps that you can use to make it easy to do.
