When you change color in crochet, it leaves an abrupt step between the colors. Most of the time that doesn’t bother me at all, but sometimes I want to make it smoother. There are a lot of ways to do that – including some pretty crazy complex methods – but I’ve found a very simple method that’s super easy – and smooths out those stripes just enough to make me happy.
See how easy that is?
