Changing color in crochet is as simple as that.
As far as finishing off the yarns in the color change, you have a few options.
- You can knot the yarn, cut it (leaving about a 6 inch tail), and weave in the ends later. (Recommended)
- You can simply cut the yarn and work over the ends.
- You can knot the yarn, cut it off close to the knot, and continue on.
