A Study In Color Joins: Crocheting In Rounds Part 2

This week we will study a new method for you to try when you are crocheting concentric circles (like a bulls-eye) and changing to a new color for each new round. Here is your pattern as in Part 1:

Chain 2 and crochet in 2nd chain from hook or use the Magic Ring to begin a new circle:

Rnd 1: 6sc in 2nd chain or ring, join with sl st to first sc (6 sts)

Change to new color

Rnd 2: ch 1, 2sc in each sc around, join with sl st to first sc (12 sts)

Change to new color

Rnd 3: ch 1, (2sc in next sc, sc in next sc) around, join with sl st to first sc (18 sts)

Fasten off.

Color Change: Method 2

Step 1: Crochet all 6 sc in ring for Rnd 1.

Step 2: Insert hook into 1st sc of Rnd as if to join and grab the new color yarn.

Step 3: Draw the new color yarn through loops to complete sl st join.

Continue Rnd 2 using new color yarn and change color for Rnd 3 in the same manner.

Here is what the completed color joins of Rnds1-3 look like.

As you can see to left of the white mark, this method produces a small horizontal line giving a less polished end result. However, it is a perfectly acceptable alternative for those who do not mind a more visible join.
