HOW TO CHANGE COLOR WHEN YOU’RE CROCHETING ON THE WRONG SIDE:

To make sure that the color change is invisible when you’re crocheting on the wrong side of the work (aka every row with an even number), you must change the color this way:
Take the “old” thread with your left hand (pic.1) and move it forward (between the “new” thread and the loop) (pic.2). Hold it steady with your left thumb as you change color.
Then, wrap the new thread around the hook (pic.3), and pull it through the loops (pic.4).
