Crocheting with fabric strips is a bit different than crocheting with yarn. The most significant difference: unless you buy ready-made rag balls or quilters' jelly rolls, you'll have to cut your fabrics into strips before you can start crocheting with them.

If you'd like to learn more about rag crochet, you're invited to take a look at the following pages:

I’ve just begun making rag rugs and have been working in rounds so far. Now I would like to advance to an oval shape, and hopefully learn to change colors so that each “stripe” of color is even — so that the point of the color change is not noticeable. Hopefully this makes sense.

I can’t find any directions on how to make this color change. Can you help?

Just start your single crochet. Place your hook in your space, yarn over, pull up a loop (two loops on hook), then, using your new material, yarn over (place on hook) and pull through both loops on hook.
