The Color Changing Collection includes only popular free crochet patterns which were all designed by me. From beginner to more advanced, you will find a pattern for you.
Changing colors can be easy, but also challenging, breath-taking and frustrating. I’ve been there myself. I went through all the emotions when I first learned how to crochet with multiple different colors. And I almost gave up. But I’m so glad I didn’t. The feeling I get now when I finish a project with multiple different colors is so amazing. I hope you know what I mean.
This free crochet pattern collection includes 12 (plus a bonus one on the bottom) color changing crochet patterns. They are perfect to make any time of the year when you need a bit of a challenge or just need something different on your crochet hook that includes several different colors using different techniques.

12 Most Popular Free Crochet Patterns with Color Changes + Bonus
1. The Snowflake Tapestry Bag
This is one of those crochet hat patterns that I not only loved designing but also was so extremely excited to share with everyone. It features a special technique called Tapestry Crochet and is made with single crochets in the back loop only.
The Polar Bear Washcloth is not only a fun pattern to make, but it also shows off the graphgan technique beautifully. It uses only single crochet stitches, lots of different colors, but doesn’t create a headache when changing colors.
3. The Ripple Hat
This hat crochet pattern only uses 2 colors, but one of them is a variegated yarn which makes this pattern even more special. It also features back post double crochet stitches which create that nice ripple effect when changing colors.
I have to tell you, that this is an absolute dream. I am not surprised in any way that this hat made the list. It has style, elegance and most importantly a beautiful texture. It looks like a brick wall when combining single crochet stitches with Tunisian crochet.
This hat crochet pattern makes me so excited. It not only features a beautiful transition between 2 different colors but it also uses heat wave yarn which keeps your head nice and warm when wearing it outside.
I love this cardigan. Using only double crochet stitches the color transitions are easy and smooth and create a stunning effect. And let’s not forget the velvet yarn that makes this cardigan extra cozy.
This blanket looks a lot harder than it really is. It is time-consuming, but so worth making. The pattern includes several tutorials guiding you through each challenge step by step.
Looking through all my blanket crochet patterns, this is still one of the most popular ones. I’m so excited cause it shows a wave effect through stitches and color transitions by going lighter to darker and vice versa.
If you know someone who loves rainbows and/or unicorns then this is the hat for them. The color transitions are easy and smooth and make the hat a stunning color-changing crochet project.

This pattern not only features the crocheted knit stitch, aka waistcoat stitch, but it is turning out to be a very popular pattern lately. The development of the pattern has an amazing story too. Be sure to check it out and read the details.

This pattern is a bonus pattern and yes, it’s a pretty one for sure. It’s a pouch that can store, hooks, pencils, makeup or anything else. And it features the technique called tapestry crochet. It is a premium pattern, and it’s a bonus. So it’s not free.
