Tapestry crochet

Hey everyone, so I’ve seen loads of tapestry crochet about on Pinterest and fancied giving it a go. Here is my first attempt – featuring triangles of course!

The method is pretty simple, I used single crochet stitches, and whichever colour I wasn’t using for the stitch, I was crocheting over. To change colour you start using the new colour for the final yarn over and pull through of the stitch before. And that’s it! You could make any pattern you like using this technique. Im going to try hexagons next, but you could do chevrons, checkerboard, pictures of animals, anything. AND. No ends to sew in! 

For this one I used – drops Safran cotton yarn (4 ply) in Navy and White, and 2.5mm crochet hook.
