  1. Hi Lynn, You could try working under the front loop only for the stitch but I’m honestly not certain what affect that will have on the front side of the project? I use that technique for projects worked in the round usually – so insert your hook under the top loop of the first sc and insert your hook under the top loop of the next sc, then yarn over and pull through both loops, then yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops. Or if that doesn’t look great try working under the back loop only with the same technique? Let me know if one of those methods works please 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  2. Is there anyway to make the back sctog look better. The colour change doesn’t look great

  3. Do you fasten off after each color change or just drop the yarn?
