I am sooooooo excited for this week's post! Pam, from Sincerely Pam, has graciously put together a photo tutorial for all of you on how she changes colors in her patterns. This method is so seamless and beautiful you will want to start using it on all your projects asap! I haven't been able to stop using it. She's a GENIUS!!!!
How I change colors written by Pam Dajczak:
Photo 1: When I join colors at the end of a round, I complete the round as usual. Normally, you would join at the last step of the previous round (in this case, the slst), but I complete that step as if there were no change happening.
Photo 2: Shows where I pull through the new color.
Photo 3: Using the hanging end of the old color, pull down firmly so that you no longer see the old color, leaving the new color on your hook.
Photo 4: Here I ch1 to continue on the next round.
Photo 5: Shows the completed round in the new color.
Photo 6: Here I used the same method as Photos 1-3 to show what it would look like to change colors in the middle of a round.
The bottom photo shows the top of the work so you can see what the color changes look like.
Changing colors when working in Rows uses the same method.
Thanks so much Pam!!! I really appreciate your time in putting this together for everyone! I hope you all enjoy it and will try it out really soon. You can find Pam's patterns on Etsy, Craftsy, and Ravelry and you can also follow her on Facebook.
