How to crochet stripes

In this DROPS video we show how crochet stripes.

When you crochet stripes, or want to change color, this his how you do it; when working the last stitch with the old color wait with the last pull through. Take new color and now pull trough.Tighten the old thread. Turn work with a ch and keep working with the new color.

If there is a longer distance between the stripes make sure to twist the new color around the previous one when you reach the edge, so that the old color follow the side of your work until you will use it. If this is a sweater the threads will run along the inside of side seam, if it’s a potholder, you can make a crochet edge around the potholder afterward to cover the treads along the edge.
