📓 How to add or join yarn - half double crochet
Begin the yarn change process in the stitch prior to where you want the change to occur. Begin the stitch as usual. When there are three loops left on the hook, grab the new yarn and pull that through to complete the stitch. Make sure that both of the tails (the new and old yarn) are both at least 6" long.
Work your stitches as usual, with the new yarn.
