I am learning to do tunisian crochet and as my project is coming along, I am not really sure how to deal with the ends. I am switching between two colors every 5 rows and was not able to come up with a good way to just bring the yarn up as I crochet. So I started cutting the ends, which is going to leave me tons of weaving in to do. Is there a trick to this with tunisian? Is there a way to carry the color up without having to cut at the end of each row?

any help would be much appreciated.

I've done some color change with tunisian and I'm still experimenting with it.  I'm mulling over the idea that if you have a lot of spaces that you need new colors I would roll a ball of that color for each color change, then you could bring them up to the next row or color change space in the rows above with less mess then you have only the ends at the end of the piece.  but you have to be willing to work around all of those strands.

(maybe that make sense in my own head only...)

Thank you for you reply. I think it ended up being easier for me to just cut the ends after each row and weave them in. I'm still working on my project, but I am weaving as I go , so as not to have tons of dangly ends while I work.
