The Easy Way to Change Colors for Any Crochet Project

There are lots of different ways to change colors in crochet, but the one that I keep coming back to time and time again is the method that all be showing you today.

It’s a seamless changing color method that doesn’t require a slip knot or any other type of knot. All you have to do for this method is work your stitch as the pattern states, and when you go to complete the last step of your stitch, you bring in your second color, wrap it around your hook, and complete the last step of your stitch with this color.

By doing it this way, you get a smooth, seamless, even color change within your work. It also gives it a nice clean finish!

So let’s take a look at these steps a bit closer with the step-by-step photo and guided video tutorial down below.

  • Any crochet hook. I am using 5.0 mm wooden crochet hook.


1. Start by working your last stitch in the row, but do not complete the final step of the stitch.

Using my single crochet swatch as an example, insert your hook in the stitch, yarn over, and pull through (2 loops on hook).

2. Grab your second color, wrap it around the crochet hook. So both the working yarn and the tail end of color “B” are towards you.

3. Then pull through the last two loops on the hook with color "B" for a completed single crochet.

Continue by working in the second color until you're ready to switch to the next color.
