I'm a new crocheter and I'm making a bag. How do I add in my next ball of yarn? I'm almost to the end of the first skein and I don't know how to continue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! :pout:

Yarnlady said this in a different post:

I just loop the yarn over the hook where I want the new color to start and continue crocheting. After a few rows I'll go back and clip the old color leaving six or so inches to weave in later.

Thanks robynbird (and yarnlady). So, please bear with me for a minute. Do I pick up the tail of the skein I'm finishing up as well as the tail of the new one, to keep them together, or just the next one? If just the next one, what happens to the tail from the first one? They're both the same color, so I'm not switching or anything. I'm more familiar with knitting, so this is all new to me. lol. Thanks again! :waving:

When I come to where I need to add in another ball of yarn, I do the stitch until the final pull through then do the final YO with the new ball of yarn and do the final pull through.

I.e. for a single crochet: Insert hook into the stitch, yarn over, pull through the stitch, do YO w/new ball of yarn and final pull through.

At the final pull through you drop the old yarn and use the new one. I hope this makes sense.

That does make sense. Thank you so much!
