How to Seamlessly Change Colors in Crochet Today I want to show you how you can seamlessly change colors in crochet. Changing yarn colors within a row can be neat and easy.

How to Crochet The crocheted Woven Stitch is one of my favorites to use for baby blankets and afghans since it is easy to stitch, using only chain stitch and single crochet, and it works up quickly into a nice single thickness lightweight blanket. It can be worked in one solid color, in a variegated yarn or in stripes and each combination looks great. Here's how it works: Start out with a beginning chain in multiples of 3, plus 2 extra. For the first row, skip the first 2 chains and work a single crochet into the third chain. Then chain 1, skip 1 chain, work 1 single crochet, as shown above.

Garden art on the cheap DIY: Glass marbles in your fence Colorful marbles make a plain old fence sparkle. I had the pleasure of speaking at the Lake Owasso Garden Club this week. It was a full classroom of avid, fun-loving gardeners and the topic at hand was Art in the Garden.
