I remember being a beginner and it was terrible when I came to the very end. You know what I’m talking about. They just tell you, “weave ends” or “weave in ends” or better yet, “finish off”. Ha! If you’ve never done that, ya might be a little stuck. I get it. I do that with my projects, and I just noticed a few months ago… Yeah, let’s fix that! 🙂
BTW my fave social is Insta! @AshleyDylanLife
Ya know I love video tutorials! Here’s one just for you!
Oopsy daisy! You prefer photo tutorials?!?! Here ya go!
To weave ends you can take the yarn right through the stitches, although if you only do this, it might not be too secure.
You can take the needle down stitches to weave in other rows/rounds.
You can mix it up a bit. I think the most important part, is not to skip over huge chunks of the project. It will be sooo visible and kinda ruin the look of your project. Just try to follow the stitch as much as possible.
I like to split yarn (while making sure it’s hidden). It actually a great way to secure your weaving better. You can use thread and a embroidery needle to secure the end. Just sew it right in. I haven’t ever used this method, but I hear it’s very effective. Otherwise, just cut the extra yarn and you’re done! Woohoo! You just learned how to weave in ends with knit and crochet!!!! 😀
If ya have any other ways you like to weave ends, leave them in the comments below! We would love to hear how you weave your ends in.
And before I completely forget, I know sometimes you need some extra help with something. Well since I'm really busy, it can take me a day or 2 before I can get back to you. The thing is, I feel REALLY bad about that. So I created the Ultimate Knit and Crochet Facebook group. It's got some really awesome women that love to share their projects, help out and get inspired from your cool adventures. But if you'd rather wait, you can always DM me on Insta for a lil extra help. :) All good?
I'm probably leaving something out. I'm only human afterall. Contribute to this information in the comments below!
