How to Change Colors Every Row Without Fastening off in Crochet

Share the Love!

Image that says change colors every row without fastening off
Do you love striped afghans but find it discouraging that you have so many ends to weave in? Learn to change colors in crochet without fastening off. Yes, I am talking about 2 colored stripes where you cannot drop and pick up the previous color as it would be at the opposite end of your work.

This crochet tip is meant for Afghans with borders and will work with stitches that look the same on both the sides.


Watch the video below to learn how.

Pin it for later.

Excellent tip! I have been trying to figure out how to do this. Just to make sure, I will just leave the small piece of yarn that will go up each edge of my work as I change colors, right?

This is brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing! I can’t wait to try it on a new project.

This was very helpful. I always shy away from a color change every row and instead go every two rows. Now I can change colors every row. Thank you!

thank you for this short tutorial. I can now work in strips to my hearts content without having to weave in all those ends. Thank you so much :)

Thanks for the tip. I think it is brilliant. One of those times when I think to myself, "Why didn't I think of that?"
