You will need thin yarn of a contrasting color. When you have a color you like, add a thin white, cream, or contrasting color ensuring a different color square with a color you have already used in your afghan, but the outcome with be entirely different. You need nothing more than you already have.

Total Time: Same time as any square you might make

Yield: Same amount of squares as normal

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Choose the primary color.
  2. Select a thin yarn (less ply than the original color). Baby weight yard is helpful in this.
  3. Crochet both strands together as if they were one strand.
  4. Enjoy a look that isn't variegated, but isn't the color of another square.
  5. You can also make only part of your main pattern using this method for an even different look.
