How to change color seamlessly
Posted August 14, 2015on:
When you change colors while working in rounds you usually end up with a zig zag pattern that doesn’t look very nice if you really care about details. That’s the downside of working in spirals, your row is not leveled with the previous one, and any change of color will show. There is another way to make your rows look seamless, and it is actually very easy to do.
Here are two pieces I crocheted, one was done the basic way, the other one is seamless. The one on the right looks much better, obviously, so here is a tutorial to show you how to do it.
Make a slip stitch with your new color, then a single crochet in the same stitch. You can start hiding the loose threads behind your stitches as you go.
Continue to single crochet in rounds as usual until you are ready to change color again. Fasten off and repeat the same process from the beginning with the new color.
That’s it! As easy as that. If you have any questions about this tutorial don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments section. Happy crocheting!
