How to Join Yarn (Change Colors) When Crocheting

When crocheting, you will likely need to join yarn at some point. You join (or change) yarn when you use up a skein of yarn and need to start another skein or you are changing colors.

In this post, I show you how to join (or change) yarn at the end of a row or in the middle of a row.

Background

My mother taught me how to crochet when I was a child. I have continued to crochet in adulthood and thoroughly enjoy learning new crochet stitches and patterns. I think creating something from a skein of yarn is very satisfying. In addition, I love the various colors and textures of yarn. There is nothing better than spending time in the yarn aisles at Hobby Lobby. I also find that crocheting is very relaxing.
