Tapestry Crochet is a technique that we know you’re going to love! Used to describe a special sort of crochet that involves changing colors as you go.

The first thing you’ll notice about these patterns is the incredible colors! Using this sort of crochet pattern, you can easily create a lot of different designs.

We’ve rounded up a lot of fantastic tutorials, patterns, and a video to show you how to master this technique.

Tapestry crochet basically makes a flat pattern design, but without casting off when you change colors. Not only does this look beautiful, but it’s also neat and tidy from all sides.

This is done by crocheting over the color you’re not using with the color you are using and switching between the two.

In the above example, Blogger Julie Harrison shows how to graph out a harlequin pattern, and crochet it step-by-step. You end up with gorgeous rows of colored diamonds.

This bag uses a similar pattern as the Harlequin, but every diamond is outlined with a light color. The pattern is entirely written out, so it is a great one to follow if you don’t like graph patterns. You’ll need 5 different colors of yarn, and 2.0mm and 2.5mm crochet hooks.
