Interested in learning more about or sharing your tapestry crochet masterpieces? Then this group is for you! Tapestry crochet is similar to regular crochet, except that one or more yarns are carried while another is crocheted. While I prefer the single crochet stitch, any stitch may be used. The finished pieces usually look woven instead of crocheted. The carried yarn is not visible from the back of the stitches when it is laid on top of the previous row and covered by the stitches being worked. The carried yarn is slightly visible with loose stitches, but hidden with tight stitches. The new color is switched when there are still 2 loops on the hook - then the old color is carried (angled to the front and held in place with the thumb) while working the new color.
