How to Crochet in a Spiral: A Video Tutorial

How to Crochet in a Spiral, a tutorial by April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio

Why would you want to crochet in a spiral?

Some crochet patterns are written in a way that makes two or more colors spiral out from the center. You can do some fun things with this technique. I have two patterns available that use this technique:

One nice thing about this technique is that you are able to make stripes, without cutting your yarn or making floats on the wrong side of your project in order to change colors.
