TUTORIAL - Switching yarns

In this tutorial I will show how to change the yarn when working in single crochet stitch.

Tip! This method is quick and easy, but is not best suited for making stripes – there will be a step where the yarn is changed and stripes will not line up. For perfect stripes, join all rounds using this method.

1. Stop before the last step of the last single crochet stitch with the “old” yarn.

2. Tie the “new” yarn around the “old” yarn
and push the knot close to the piece. Cut the
“old“ yarn and tie the yarn tails together.
