Finish Off and Weave in Ends in CrochetBy Rachel Choi – 34 Comments
I’m often asked, “What is the best way to finish off and weave in ends?”
My answer: When I finish off I like to make one chain then cut the yarn and pull the strand of yarn through the chain if I’m working in rows. This makes a small little knot. If I’m working in the round I like to slip stitch in the next stitch, then cut the yarn. Then I weave the ends into the back side of the work. If you’re really scared that it’s not secure, such as when you do a color change, then feel free to tie small knots. Yes, I make knots.
I have a feeling that every time someone asks me this question, they expect some magical answer. But hey, I’m human and I just tell you what I do.
