When changing colors at the end of a row, change to the new color when two loops remain on hook. For instance, with Color A, start the single crochet the last stitch, insert hook, yarn over and pull a loop through. With Color B, pull through the 2 loops on hook to complete the single crochet.

When changing colors, drop the old color to start with the new color. When the color is needed again, pull it along the side of the row. Don’t pull it too tightly or it will buckle the fabric.
