Are you as obsessed with Tunisian crochet as I am?! The more I learn and create with these gorgeous stitches, the more I want to know. Full disclosure: I MIGHT have about 6 different WIPs (works in progress) going right now using various Tunisian crochet techniques. The most fun one is a striped shawl/ scarf that I'm working on, so I knew I had to do a tutorial on TL Yarn Crafts TV about color changing techniques with Tunisian crochet.
It might seem obvious, but if you really think about it, being able to change color in your crochet projects opens up a WORLD of possibility. It's a matter of taking a bland, uninspiring project to the next level by blending contrasting or complimenting colors together in a fun way. When I think of using color to spice up a project, visions of color blocked cardigans and fair isle beanies dance around in my overcrowded head. It's glorious.
Without further adieu, please enjoy this tutorial on color changing in Tunisian crochet. The 3 techniques covered are:
- Color changing with solid rows
- Color changing with blended or mixed rows
- Creating blocks of color by changing color in the middle of your rows
