Learn how to change colors at the end of a row in your crochet project. This tutorial demonstrates the invisible color change, how to end and how to start a row in a new color.
You can use this invisible color change on many crochet stitches. Changing colors at the end of a row is a little different than the middle of the row.
When you’re at the end of a crochet row, the stitches tend to be looser since they’re not in between others. In the tutorial, I show you how I use the yarn tails to tighten those stitches up.

I’m crocheting with two contrasting colors of Red Heart With Love in teal and beige for this tutorial.
Red Heart With Love is a #4 medium worsted weight yarn. You can use any weight yarn your pattern specifies.
This color changing technique is useful for a variety of crochet stitches. I use the single crochet and double crochet here.
You can apply this invisible color change to any crochet stitch you are using in your pattern.
Of course the easiest way to do color changes is to let yarn do the changing for you! I love this shawl pattern from Elk Studio Handcrafted Crochet Designs.
