Gingham print is always hot in the spring and summer months! It can be used in both timeless and trendy projects, and the color options are truly endless. Achieving a gingham print in crochet projects is much easier than you would think, and today I have a right and left handed video tutorial to show you how to do it. This video is also a great reference for learning how to change colors in crochet in general, and the same technique could be applied to any plaid print you want to work with.
A few weeks ago I released my Spring Gingham Dishcloths, and I heard a lot of comments from my readers that they would appreciate a video tutorial demonstrating specifically how to change and carry colors. After you watch this video tutorial, you will be able to make all of my gingham patterns like a pro! You can also find my matching Spring Gingham Hand Towel pattern for free here to make a matching set.
So now you're ready to learn how to crochet gingham, right?! Grab your hook and yarn and follow along with me!
Supplies for Practicing the Crochet Gingham Stitch:
- Any worsted weight yarn in white, a light tone and a mid or dark tone of the same color.
- Your preferred crochet hook (I used a 5.0mm Clover Amour)
- Yarn needle
- Scissors (I always keep these Fiskars Travel Scissors in my hook case)
