Crochet Challenge Week 12 Best Tip
The best crochet tip I every got was to change colors by using the change color in the last two loops of the stitch. This tips has been posted frequently but I saw it about two years ago, I just don't remember where. switching colors before you finish off the last two loops of a stitch makes for a nice neat color change. I have been looking at tapestry crochet again. I played around with it just a bit last fall, (tiny bag in three colors) but I would like to do some more work with it. I was not doing the color change quite right. Bags are fun because you keep working in the round. Flat pieces are harder, for a return row I will either have to learn to crochet with my left hand or learn to crochet "backwards". I can appreciate how hard it must be for my daughter, who is a lefty, to work in a "righty" world when I try to crochet left handed, that will take a LOT of practice.
