Whether you are changing colors or joining two skeins, this method is easy and works well for either single or double crochet stitches.
You will need
- Crochet hook
- Yarn needle
Step 1 Finish first thread Pause your crocheting before you run out of the old thread. Leave a tail at least 4 inches long.
Join the new thread at the end of a row, unless your pattern calls for a color change in the middle of a row.
Step 2 Position new thread Position the new yarn on top of the last row of stitches.
Step 3 Yarn over Wrap the new thread behind and over the needle to yarn over.
Step 4 Join Hook the new thread and pull it through the two loops on the needle.
Step 5 Crochet Continue making crochet stitches with the new thread.
Step 6 Knotted join Join the two threads with a small knot if the previous method fails.
Step 7 Weave ends Weave in the loose ends across a row with a yarn needle.
A New York art gallery featured giant sculptures of crocheted rope in 2007, and visitors were encouraged to climb over the huge woven structures.
