How to change the color of a crochet c2C
When changing color during a C2C crochet pattern, you should change the yarn at during making the previous double crochet stitch. This will ensure a smooth color change on all blocks including those on increase rows, decrease rows, end of rows and everything in-between.
C2C color change tutorial
Change colour while completing the previous double crochet stitch:
- Green – Yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on the hook
- Pink – Pull pink yarn through the final 2 loops on the look
You can then continue to sl st & ch in pink for an even colour change between blocks.
How to carry yarn in C2C crochet
You do not need to fasten off after every colour change, especially if you will be using that colour again soon. You can even carry multiple colors! Carrying the yarn also saves the amount of time you’ll spend weaving in ends.
To carry the yarn, simply place the unused colour over the ch 3 space you will be working into, and crochet over them both.
