Crochet Color Work: Video Tutorial + Kit
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.

I ordered the bear mountain crochet ed hat. Kit. it is pricey but I wanted to make or for my college. Granddaughter.
I called before ordering and was told everything came inthe kit. I called back today and now was told the K hook and tapestry needle do not come with the kit So now this hat will cost me almost 50$. By the time I buy everything including shipping. this is unfair I received a runaround. And I was told I could return the kit. this is not a solution. it looks like everything comes in the kit inthe ad. I am very disappointed in this company.

I purchased the Bear Mountain 4 color crochet pattern. It says that the two sizes are 21″ and 28″ Is that right? 28″ is mighty big!!! Could it possibly be meant to be 23″?
