First I'd like to say a big Thank you to everyone who took the time to visit my blog and to leave a comment on my crochet patchwork cushion cover, I also received a few questions so I hope the photos and the instructions below will help.
Initially I thought I'd make lots of little squares but then I wasn't too keen on having to join them all up somehow so I came up with this instead.
Chain 9 and skip the 1st chain, work in rows of dc to form a square.
Change colour as shown below and turn.
When working your 1st row in a different colour make sure you crochet over the ends of your yarn, this way you won't have to worry about weaving in all those ends at the end.
When you reach the end of your 1st row cut the ends and carry on changing colours at regular intervals until you have your strip as long as you want it.
Join the strips together by sewing or slip stitching and make sure you align the squares correctly.
You could also play with this idea and instead of squares go for a "crazy patchwork" look by making each section of your crochet strip a different height, just make sure all your strips are the same length.
