I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Weaving the ends in Crochet a How to

If you ever wondered how to weave the ends in our piece of crochet work, here is a demostration of weaving the ends , my way. I hope you find it instructive and that you are able to share your opinion with me. I will be teaching you how to make a fringe and how to attach it. The following video is a footnote to the above instructional video


Thanks for stopping by!

It is always really interesting to see how other people do things. When I weave the ends, I only put the needle through about 2 to 3 inches worth of stitching and then go up over one stitch and then back into it ontop of where I just went, so it sort of locks it into place. I don't do knots, because they always find their way to the top of the work.

However, the way you did a loose knot and then hid it into the work is interesting and I might experiment with in the future.

Thanks for sharing your video. I love hearing your accent as I think it is more personal.

Hi Andy!
Greetings from Houston. I enjoyed your weaving the ends video. One question -- do you have a preference as to how long your ends should be? I tend to trim mine down to around 5 inches or so.
Thanks!
Ann

Hi Evryone, Riohnna yes you told me about the frogs. They are not hard to make.

I usually make sure the tail of the work is at least 5 inches (10cm) to 12 inches (25 cm )or more The tails of the work . It is easier to trim after you are sure you have hidden the tail lol!
