How do you crochet with two strands together without getting them tangled? (sorry if it's a dumb question).

The title is a little unfortunate, but here are some instructions for carrying yarn while crocheting: Here is a video; doesn't seem to have sound, but demos one method:

Here is a link to the video tutorial on changing colors without knots.

It is simple, effective and so fast to make . Thank you

This might be a great way to use up leftover yarn from a large project (like the granny square afghan I'm currently working on). I'll have to purchase a new size P hook, though; my old one disappeared when I last moved, over 25 years ago!

When making this scarf, on row two are we still using the two main colors also or fastening them off?

to "bnoble 3000476" .... On row 2, you change to a contrasting yarn (yarn that goes with either of the two main colors) before beginning.... you carry your yarns up along the side of the scarf being careful to give the yarns a single twist as you change at each of the rows.

Great pattern here and easy to do I find that I can carry on the contrasting colors nicely without tying off after each row also love the new method that I came across somewhere allowing me to add on without any knots and YES LADIES this works LOL Crocheting to me being a man is very relaxing at the end of a long day I have arthritis in my hands and this really helps me keep them active like I always like to be busy I am medically retired and normally do alot of QUILTING self taught and I do quite well but also make alot of PRIMITIVES too all kinds Then after I am tired of fabric from the day I sit with a great Netflix Movie and get them crochet meanderings a working at my finger tips most of what I do ends up being a newly created designRead More fun to work on Would love to here from Other guys that relax making crafty type things to keep them busy as well Thanks sorry my fingers went amuck on this keyboard foaming at the mouth here LOL thanks for the patterns and Great future projects as well IrishLad from Orlando Florida USA

Would love to know your new method for changing colors without tying off. Been crocheting for years and I cannot figure out how to do that. Would appreciate your help.... Lizzzitish

If he is speaking of joining colors with no knots, google "Russian Join", that is the method I use for no knots, and I love it! There may be others but that's the only one I know of so far.

I used this same stitch pattern and made three lapghans using all my leftovers. I used three strands and as one color ran out I added a complementary color and they came out really beautiful and warm. I can share pictures if anyone likes, but this is a perfect stitch and hook for using leftover yarn

i would love to see pictures of your lapghans. gina

I would LOVE to see your FP.... veganmom @ or 1VeganMom on thanks!

I would love to see the lapghans and learn how you did them.

I am always looking for new patterns and would love to see your lapghans

I too would enjoy seeing photos of your Lapghans....this is Ken aka IrishLad....Thanks so much

I would love to see pictures of your lapghans and instructions on how to make them. Thank you!

Would love to see pictures and learn how to add without knots. What kind of yarn can I use on this scarf? Jan

So, just to be sure. When I add the contrasting color, I'm only using that one strand, correct? Do I tie off the two main colors at that point, or do I leave them hanging to pick up at the next row? I see that I fasten off the contrasting color which I'm single crocheting with, but didn't see any instructions about fastening off the two main colors while working on the scarf. Looks fun and easy.

you don't tie off anything, you add the new color through weaving it in and keep on. allfreecrochet has an excellent video to show you how to add new colors without knots. I love it. Thx for sharing this scarf. It's beautiful. I'm going to make some for myself and others.
