Techniques You Will Need


CHANGING COLORS:

When changing from one color to another, you’ll never finish the stitch with the color you where working with.

Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.

Repeat this every time you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.
