Hi, I'm Phyllis of Many Creative Gifts, and in this segment I'm going to show you how to change colors when you're making the fan stitch. When you're on your second row of fans and you want to switch colors, you can do it at a couple of different points. Here, I'm linking up the top of the previous fan, the transition single crochet stitch. And then I would start, normally start my next fan stitch in the single crochet stitch from the row below. But, let's say that I wanted to do this new fan in a different color. Let's back up then. In order to do this single crochet stitch, instead of finishing it in blue, I'm going to switch to green and I'm going to use the green color to finish the single stitch. By doing that, I'm all ready to start my new fan in green. So, I'm making my fan in green and you'll see that there's no bleeding of colors and it's really crisp change in color. So, we went from blue to green; now, let's say we want to go back to blue again. Instead of finishing my double crochet stitch with the green, I'm going to back up a step and I'm going to do the last loop of the double crochet stitch in blue. This way, the fan still stays in green, but I can do the transition single crochet stitch in blue. And this way, both colors show through crisply and the transitions are very smooth. I'm Phyllis of Many Creative Gifts and in this segment, we covered how to change colors while doing the shell stitch.
