I am not new to crocheting but this is the first time I am crocheting a ripple afghan using 2 colors.I usually use the multi colored yarn. My problem is I don't know how to change colors at the end of a row.I've googled it but I must say I'm a little confused because there are several different answers. Anyone out there can help a first timer?
Thank you.

I do crochet a little and what I read somewhere and is
what I do:
When you get to the last stitch of the row, you get down
to 2 loops on hook, yarn over WITH NEW COLOR and you now
have the new color attached. I leave a little tail of old
and new yarn to weave in later.
Hope this helps and good luck.

RE: Need help!!

jjknitter is correct. Have fun working with two differnt colors, now.

RE: Need help!!

That's what I have been reading however, when I get to the end of the row that I am doing I am only down to 1 loop. The ending of my row is like this. When I get down to the last 5 sc, I sc in each of the 3, skip 1 sc, then go through both loops of the last sc. That leaves me with one loop on my needle. Hope I am explaining this right. I'm so better at visual then reading. Thanks!!!

Use the new color to go through both loops of the last sc. While this might sound odd, when you begin the next row you will see that this is correct.
