The correct way to change yarn colors in crochet

This is the correct way to change yarn colors in crochet. The invisible, seamlessly, and easy way.

The color change actually occurs during the last stitch of the first color. Work until the place where you want the change of colors to take place. Work the last stitch until you have the lasts two loops on the hook, right before completing that last stitch altogether. Pick up the new color and make a loop around the hook. Draw your new yarn color back through the last two loops on your hook. Continue crocheting as usual. Watch the video tutorial below to know how to change colors in crochet!
