On this week’s Ask Me Monday live stream, I showed an introduction to the crochet color work that’s used in my Bear Mountain hat, but can be applied to any project requiring creating a graphic look through crochet.
Crochet Color Work
My Bear Mountain Beanie plays with two types of color work: stripes and stranded. Stranded color work in crochet may look intimidating, but is really quite easy. By simply carrying the unused color behind the work and periodically grabbing the strand under your hook, the yarn moves along with out bunching. Whe you want to swith colors, just pick up the new one during the last yarn-over step of the stitch before the one you want worked in the new color.
