Hi, I'm Phyllis with Many Creative Gifts, and in this segment I'm going to show you how to slip stitch to start a new row and color. So if you are doing rows a single crochet and you are finishing up a row of orange, as I am here, and you get to the end of the row and you want to change colors, to pink in my case, you are going to start your last single crochet stitch with the row. You are going to pull up a loop. But instead of finishing the stitch with orange, you are going to take your pink and you are going to use that to finish up the last loop of the stitch. Pull it through and turn to start your next row. And you are started with a new color. And keep going. And this way your colors all match up really neatly without the colors bleeding into each other. This also works for double crochet. Let me show you that real quick too. If you are doing a color change with double crochet you are going to start the last stitch of the row in color A. You are going to do the first pull through of the two loops on your hook. But instead of finishing the stitch with orange we are going to switch to our next color, pink in my case. And use that color to finish out the stitch. When you do that your stitch stays all in orange and you are ready to turn and start a new row in the new color. Again, without any bleeding of colors from row to row. I'm Phyllis of Many Creative Gifts. And this segment covered using the slip stitch to start a new row with a new color.
