One request that I’ve gotten a few times, here at the blog and on my facebook page, is for a video tutorial detailing how I weave in ends. Well, I finally got my hands on the camera and we filmed this last night!
The technique is the same, no matter what kind of stitches you are weaving into – sc, dc, trc, etc. The key thing is to work back into the tail, splitting it with your needle in several places. That will make your ends much more secure. Never just knot the yarn and cut it next to the knot – that knot will almost always wiggle it’s way out eventually!
Hope this video helps you with your own crochet projects! Stay tuned for more videos!

As always, your video tutorials rock. Thanks!!
Thank YOU! 😀
I’ve been needing to see this for some time now! Haha. Thanks so much! 🙂 I may now complete with confidence!!
Glad to help, Heather! 😀
Thank you so much for making this video! I only wish I would have watched it before making my full size granny sunburst afghan! I made 88 squares and about 1/2 of them have unraveling spots because I didn’t weave them in very securely. Luckily I left a tail on most of them so I’m going back and weaving them in via your method. Pay attention to this video!
Oh no! Thank goodness for those long ends!
Great tutorial!!…!Exactly the way my mom taught me when I was young. =)
Thank you! I’m self taught for the most part, so I used to just crochet over the ends – and learned my lesson the hard way!
Great video! How would you weave in ends on a projects that has a lot of spaces? I had a blanket that I made and each row was sc, ch 1, sc, ch 1 and whenever I had to add yarn I had a hard time hiding the ends. Any tips?
It’s not easy, it’s true! Short bits woven into each stitch, for several stitches, over and over. It can be tedious, but better once than over and over!
What do you mean by ” splitting the yarn tail. ” I can see you are sewing in the opposite direction on the same row, but not sure what you are splitting. BTW, I’m half way through the blackberry salad baby blanket, and loving it! I crocheted over every time a changed a row, but realizing I need to so a better job of weaving in ends 🙂
I wish that part were easier to show on camera! Basically, it means you push the needle right through the middle of the yarn strand itself – so the yarn isn’t next to each other, it’s through each other. Is that clearer? So glad you’re liking the blanket! 😀
Thanx sooo much for the video. I have been doing it all wrong and got frustrated when the seems come loose ha ha. I will certainly sew in the ends like this in the future. Thnx again
🙂 Glad I could help!
I’ve always just taken the tail and weaved it through the stitches with my hook. Thanks for your vid’s I’ve recently discovered them and, am really enjoying learning.
Thank you so much Lorraine! 🙂
Ive just recently finished crocheting a blanket, but I’m using Bernet Blanket yarn and it doesn’t split so what should I do? Can I still use this technique without splitting my yarn? I love your videos btw they’ve been such a great help!
hi tyree! sorry for no caps- my shift key has broken!
i’ve worked with this yarn, and you’re right, splitting isn’t an option here. for this type of yarn, i just weave it in for a extra long length, being sure to work in several directions. i hope that helps!
Hi! Great tutorial and I’m excited to finish my celtic weave blanket with these. Once you finish weaving, do you just cut the yarn and hope it stays?
Yes! If you’ve woven it in well enough, it should stay. 🙂 Thank you!
I can’t see the video? There’s just a white blank space where it should be…
Sorry about that Sheila, the http to https switch means manually editing all the videos – guess we missed this one! I’ll fix it now, thank you for letting me know!
