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