Week 3: Tapestry Crochet
Tapestry crochet uses simple stitches to create multi-color projects. Tapestry crochet allows you to use multiple colors in the same row by crocheting over the unused color. You can learn more about tapestry crochet here and find a roundup featuring 15 free tapestry crochet patterns here.
