A wonderful reader and fellow member of a Crochet group sent me a crochet pattern for yarn scrap slippers to publish at FaveCrafts. There cozy slippers are easy for beginners and great way to use up those tiny balls of yarn left over after a project. You can make them short or up to the knee or extra warm. Read the full crochet pattern here.
Currently, I’m crocheting a ballet wrap sweater (pattern from the Chicks with Sticks Guide to Crochet), but I’ll probably whip us some of these slippers soon for padding around the house. In the meantime, I’m having a little trouble with the concept of changing to a new ball of yarn as with a color change (actually, I’m completely avoiding any color changes at this point, haha), and the best way to weave in ends. Sure, I can do both of these techniques, but I’m looking for smoother transitions. It’s likely a matter of practice but I happened to stumble across futuregirl’s tutorials on Seamless Single Crochet and Weaving in the Last End. The tutorials offer smoother ways to change colors and weave in the yarn tail respectively. Perfect!
