How do you change colors seamlessly in crochet?

Before you make two-color crochet stitches and patterns, you have to know how to change colors in crochet!

There are a variety of techniques that you can use to change colors, like tapestry crochet, c2c crochet, and intarsia. This post is a good one to read if you’re getting started with color work.

But the good news is, the stitches and patterns in this list do not ALL use advanced techniques like intarsia. Some of them just use simple stripes! So you will definitely be able to pick and choose based on your level.
