Wondering what your next crochet project should be? Whatever you decide to make, we've got the perfect trick to help you pick the right colours – look no further than these simple yarn pegs.

Once you've mastered how to crochet, there are so many different projects you can make, from granny square blankets to stylish crochet vests. You'll be able to create so many beautiful pieces for your home and wardrobe.

It can be so difficult to pick which colours will work best, and there's nothing more disappointing than starting a project and having to unravel it.

Crochet lovers have taken to TikTok to share their super simple tip to make sure you always pick the right colours for your next crochet project.

They created yarn pegs, which are ordinary clothes pegs with a colour yarn wrapped round them and all the details of that yarn written onto the peg, like its density.

You can then hold the different coloured pegs together in various stripe combinations, to work out which will best suit your next crochet project.

Yarn pegs are such a great way to work out the right shades for your next project, like @elizaand.thegiraffe did on Instagram. We think these browns and teals complement each other perfectly.

Using yarn pegs is an easy way to work out the shade of each round of your granny square, like @meemamakes did on Instagram. It's the perfect way to use up scraps of yarn, too!

Or use your yarn pegs to work out the colour of the detail on each square of your crochet project, like @goslingandplumb did on Instagram.

So whatever your next crochet project, why not try piecing it together with yarn pegs first – they're a great way to make sure that you're happy with your colour choices and that you'll love your final crochet creation!
