Tapestry Crochet for Absolute Beginners – Lesson 2: In the Round and Pattern Repeats

Are you intimidated by Tapestry Crochet? Well, it is not as hard as it looks!

This is one of my favorite crochet techniques, and in spite of looking complicated, it is rather simple to do. Once you master this technique, you can do any colorwork design you can dream of, from the simple to the super-complex.

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to work tapestry crochet in the round, and how to use a chart with a pattern repeat.  My favorite trick for working tapestry crochet in the round is the Invisible Slip Stitch.  This technique eliminates the turning-chain line going up the side of the work, and avoids the “jog” in the design caused by working in a continuous spiral.

See Lesson 1 to learn the basics of tapestry crochet, like how to read a chart, how to change colors, and how to carry your yarn.

What type of colorwork design would you like to make?
Happy Yarning! 🙂
