Basics to start working with tapestry crochet in the round, with single crochet
Tapestry crochet is a technique that will allow you to add color work to your projects. You crochet with one thread while one or more yarns are carried and wrapped in between the stitches. Then, colors are switched throughout rounds to make a drawing. Depending on the project, you will make one or more foundation rows/rounds with a main color only and then move on to the tapestry crochet portion of the project.
