Colorwork – Learn Crochet Intarsia or Fair Isle or Jacquard or Tapestry

Learn Crochet Intarsia

This is what we’ve been doing already. So what is all this crochet colorwork about? Well, in Lion Brand’s Advanced Crochet Techniques Part Two: Colorwork, it’s said that, “No matter what you call it–colorwork, tapestry crochet, fair isle, intarsia, jacquard or otherwise–the art of working a design into the fabric of a crocheted product simply by changing colors is a skill that never gets tired…” to which my giddy brain says, “And I never tire of looking at it.” Then in the same article, Lion Brand goes on to say, “All you have to do to change a color mid-row is to crochet your stitch except for the last yarn over and pull through.” This is what we’ve been doing already!

Wait a minute. This? I’ve been doing this? (Nature’s Bounty Afghan & Intarsia Brocade Afghan)

No. Not that. I’ve most certainly not done that. But the way you work the colors in, YES! Like this, with my Earth Amigurumi free crochet pattern. Chances are pretty good you’ve also done some colorwork.
