Suz, you ALWAYS have the answers (and we thank you!!). It's okay to get confused once in a while. Your comment about it makes me smile every time I visit this thread. It's because I can SOOO relate!

I don't crochet as much as I knit either, so don't take my answers as being correct on crochet questions as knit ones.

I concede you have been around more and longer than I, but only by 17,500 posts and one year.

weaving ends
Glad to read this thread, lots of neat stuff here! I have bookmarked your site, MGM, and look forward to exploring it fully. I am about to watch the granny square video, haaving just completed my first granny square baby blanket.

My problem is that when I weave in the ends, they don't stay woven This has never happened with knitting, only crochet, but it has happened on every crochet project I have done (so far 3). After I wash the item, the ends pop up just as if I had just cut them off in the middle and left 'em. It is most obvious at junctions between colors.

Maybe this is addressed in your video... but am putting this out there in case there is a trick to it.

Many thanks,
Laura

Ah!
I see the video does address this question! I will try the stitching over method next time!

Sue, this Join is not a Knitting Join

The question wasn't how to join a chain into a round, but how to make a color change into the 3 ch space. If it were knitting that would be easy, but with crochet you have to work a bit to hide the color change/join.

Quote:
my pat says to break off yarn...(then I am started a new round) join in any 3 chain space (which I already have) and ch 3 and sc in the "space"....Thank you
Was that SC in [same] space? What comes next after that; in other words what is the rest of the round?

I have a different solution than Blueygh2 for a clean color change into a chain space, but I need the next repeat of the pattern to determine how many chains I would make after my join (color change).

I form a generous tail (6in ~ 15cm) with the new color and double it back as if to work with a double strand. (Now, the hardest part for me is to remember which is the tail and which is the working yarn.) I pull the loop, made by doubling the tail back, through the chain space. Next I pass the hook over the chains and YO with both strands and pull through the loop. (Color is now joined in a way that loosely resembles a SC.) Next I alternate using the tail or the working yarn for the chains. Which I use first depends on odd or even chain count. Alternating will weave in the tail in a clean and secure way while not being as noticeably thick as working with both strands in each chain stitch. This join method is not a slip stitch but SC and will replace one chain in most patterns.

Since a single crochet is as tall as a chain after a slip stitch join, I would now chain 2 (instead of the chain 3 in the pattern) Then I would follow the patter with the "sc in [same?] chain space." I can guess that the next stitches in the pattern would either be *{A}work into the next stitch (or stitches) before the next chain spc or {B} chain some number and then (SC, ch2, and SC) all into the next 3 chain space * and then it would repeat from * to * around. It will likely end with a join into the first chain of your color-change ch 3 (but for me that would be into my SC join.)

This sounds like a doily pattern to me and crochet thread has less ability to hide tails and bulky joins. I don't make doilies any more as I always thought they were more work and fiddling around to get clean transitions. My wife just wants to frame the ones I did make instead of using them as they were intended. **shakes head not understanding**

I made a couple circular, short row dish clothes but she wanted to use those as doilies because, "they are too pretty to get dirty." I just roll my eye at her.

Worse thing is I bet you ladies will all understand my DW and I'll still be clueless as to why she thinks these things are "to good to use."

Good night and good luck with your color joins/changes into chain spaces. I hope my wordy rambling can be understood. If not, just say so and I'll be back tomorrow or in a few days (or weeks) and give it another shot. I promise to think more in "Venus" terms than in "Mars" language the next time.
