30 Tapestry Crochet Patterns

Tapestry crochet simply uses traditional crochet stitches but adds in more than one color of yarn, making vibrant and playful patterns easy to create. Your additional color is carried along while you make your stitches, hidden on the inside of those stitches, until you want to switch colors.

Tapestry crochet is done in all single crochet and can be done in the round or back and forth in rows. By working tapestry crochet flat, you can make so many projects, from blankets to hot pads to place mats and more. And by working in the round, it’s perfect for baskets, purses, cowl, mittens, etc.
