Four Crochet Techniques That Will Bring Your Craft to the Next Level! | www.petalstopicots.com | #crochet

I like to call these the “Fab Four” of crochet techniques because they totally bring your finished projects to the next level.

Foundation Stitches

Foundation stitches are a great way of starting a project without making a beginning chain. In effect, you are working your beginning chain AND your first row of stitches in the same step … awesome, right! Learn how to do it with my step-by-step photo tutorial here!

 

Seamless Color Changes

 

No matter the stitch you are working, changing yarn colors within a row can be neat and easy. See how you can seamlessly change colors in my step-by-step tutorial here.

 

Invisible Join

The “Invisible Join” is by far my favorite little crochet trick. It looks just like a stitch, so it’s virtually impossible to tell where the final join and fasten off was made. FREE tutorial with photos here.

Magic Ring

The magic ring is a handy technique that gives you complete control of the size of your project center when working in the round … great for crocheting hats, amigurumi, granny squares, and other motifs. Follow my step-by-step photo tutorial AND video to learn how!

    I love your Fab Four! I already do three of them, but want to learn the foundation stitches which look so good! I also want to learn how to do a really good standing stitch to replace the eternal chain stitches at the beginning of a row or round. It’s easier when you change colours, but not when you stay in the same colour!
