Crochet in the round stripes  
I'm just starting to crochet.

I was successful in my first project, which was a pouch.

I made it basically by crocheting in the round, based loosely on a pattern. I did not use joins, crocheting continuously.

Then I tried to do it again by changing colors. It worked, techniquely, but only by piecing together a lot of various tutorials that all were quite close, but not exactly what i was trying to do.

Does anyone know a really clear instructions that yields 'perfect' stripes (color changing)

What I'm looking to do is crochet concentric rings, but instead of making it a coaster, making it a pouch.

(Think, bumble bee)

I am ALMOST there, but would like a cleaner look than just guessing and piecemealing thigns together.

What I'm thinking is that you'll want to keep track of the start of each round. Say you started with a round of 12 dc's, after the final one, you would want to slip st to join the round and then switch to your next colour, and so on and so forth.

I'll admit, I'm offering this advice without trying it, so that's what I'm going to go do now!

Assuming something like this:

is what you want, that would be exactly what you need to do. Join at the end of your rounds so that you can start a new round with a new colour.
