How to Minimize Weaving in Ends in CrochetBy Rachel Choi – 19 Comments
If you are like me, you hate to weave in a bunch of ends of yarn when you are done your crochet project. Normally there is at least a beginning and ending piece of yarn that you have to weave in. But there can also be other strands of yarn from when you change colors or have to cut and attach your yarn at a new position in your work. The number of ends you have to weave in can add up.
Here is a simple tip that can help you reduce the number of ends you have to weave in at the end of your project. In the example in the photos, I am changing colors, and have an end that I need to tuck into the work. This method can also be used for other situations as well!
The idea is to hold your end up to your work as shown below. (Mouse over the image for a left handed view)
Then crochet as you normally would, but over the strand of yarn. This way, you are hiding the yarn that you would normally have to tuck in later. See, you can’t even see the end that was crocheted over!
This is the same idea as carrying your yarn when you change colors in crochet. You can use this method anytime you are crochet over an area that is close to where your strand of yarn is sticking out of. Such as if you are crocheting a border, you can hold the ends of the yarn along the sides while crocheting the border over them.
