Today's video is a quick tip / tutorial that shows you how to switch colors for striped crochet patterns, and avoid the odd little jog or color "bleed" that you can get if you finish the last stitch with the same color.
This technique is best used when you want to bring that color back again soon for another row, or when using single crochet sts. If you're adding a new color and want to cut the old color, try the Chainless Starting Double Crochet technique - which also works for treble crochet and taller sts!

Thanks for visiting Ann! 😀
I am a self taught crocheter and I just stumbled onto your site I love the free tips and the video tutorials I am learning sooo much more, I have a question can you show or tell how one blocks acrylic yarn I have also heard it called killing it don't really understand the process. Thank you so much for the teaching and sharing
Thanks for saying so! 🙂 I'm on my phone out of the house so I can't link, but if you use the search bar at the top of the page, and type in "acrylic killer" it should bring up a post I did on just that! Thanks for reading!
Home again, now I can give you direct link! 🙂 https://www.mooglyblog.com/2012/04/30/acrylic-killer-a-quick-photo-tutorial/ Hope that answers your questions!
Yes thank you so much !!
Shoot! I don't know if I successfully published my question! It was: do you weave in yarn ends every two rows when you change colors on the blackberry baby blanket? Your video says to carry down the side and then snip and weave in. Isn't that a short end to snip and weave? Do you have a video of how to neatly secure ends?
Hi again, I think I answered your questions on the Baby Blanket post. 🙂
When you're working around and joining, do you change yarn colors like you've shown here, or should the joining stitch be the new color? I've tried it both ways and can't decide which looks cleaner. Just curious what other people do!
It can depend on the stitches and pattern - I will try both sometimes and just go with whichever looks better for that pattern! 😀
