WOW! I've crocheted several "personalized" projects and wondered how I could keep stitches of two-color designs facing the right side only. What a not-so-obvious way to find a tip. Thank you!!!!!

Is there a video you recommend for  the two color crocheting?

This video by Carol Ventura shows a couple different techniques for getting the effect in this square. [View:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIX7gGW79Bw&feature=player_embedded#:550:0]

Since I haven't looked at the pattern yet, I don't know which if either is described.

Hey CraftyWitch, Thanks for the info.  Both methods are shown by Carol Ventura.  Also, you merely have to type in her name on Youtube and you will get her videos.   She also mentions her web site tapestrycrochet.com where she lists free patterns and tutorials.  Thanks again.  I am currently slogging through the pattern.  Fun but tedious for new tapestry crocheter. g

I hope some of you are designing more Chain Reaction Afghan Project squares to submit for the project!  I'm not a designer...but really like this idea.  I'm anxious to see the additional squares everyone submits!
