Russian Join Tutorial - changing yarn colors and new skeins with no more weaving in the tails! Gotta learn how to do this. Weaving in ends after color changes are my LEAST favorite part of any crochet project.
A few examples of what color choice, hook size, & motif size (number of rounds) can do for this basic hexagon pattern -- all these are so eyecatching! This would be adorable with even scrap fabric too.
Excellent write-up on how to read crochet patterns. Great tips on things that aren't specifically written into patterns their just inherent. Plus the basics on learning stitches, what to do with asterisks, parenthesis, etc. Love this! by Kharis
