Normally the upcoming fashions are first brought out in fashion shows before the actual designs hitting the market. Alternately, you can learn new designs either from books or videos also.

When you are trying your hands on the basics, it is better to try out single colour patterns first such as wash cloth. After successfully learning the basics, you can move on to more complex designs and multicoloured patterns.

Mixing is an another basic technique, which you can achieve using 2 needles and with two colours of threads. In this you need to crisscross the needles over one another to achieve the multicoloured design.

Purl Stitch is another technique involved in crochet patterns. Though, the technique involved is similar to mixing, in purl stitch, while one needle hold the yarn, you will be using other needle to yarn your way inside and use both needles to create a pattern then.

Cross-stitching and switching colours are the most challenging tasks that demand your concerted efforts in any crochet project. While switching colours, you can stop the first colour then start with the next colour slowly slipping the colour yarn into the existing needle. When you are comfortable with switching colours, then you can slowly try your hands on other challenging and difficult patterns to show your talents in crocheting.
