Learn the basics to start working with tapestry crochet in the round, with single crochet, in #TechniqueTuesday with Maria from Chabepatterns and then crochet her adorable Unicorn Coin Purse.
Start the first single crochet of the round and stop before the last yarn over
Place the second color between the hook and the working yarn, leaving a 10 cm tail
Yarn over with the working yarn
And close the single crochet with the second color wrapped inside. Place a marker in the firs stitch.
For following single crochets, insert the hook in next stitch going under the second color, yarn over with working color
And complete the single crochet with the second color wrapped inside
To change color, work the last single crochet before the color change just before the last yarn over, lift second color in front of main color
Yarn over with second color and close the single crochet
And work necessary stitches with second color now wrapping main color inside
To change back to main color, work the last single crochet before the color change just before the last yarn over, lift main color behind second color
Yarn over with main color and close the single crochet. Manage the threads this way for every color change to prevent yarns from getting tangled
