The Best Ways to End Your Crochet Projects
Okay so you’ve just finished your crochet project. Congratulations! You’ve made the last stitch and you’re ready to show off your hard work and move on to another project. Then suddenly your smile of satisfaction quickly turns into a frown of exasperation. Why? Because you’ve just realized that the project isn’t actually done. Nope, it’s not. Because you still have to bind off and weave in the ends (also called tails).
I’m not going to lie, weaving in ends can be a pain. But don’t be discouraged! It’s not a pain because it’s hard. It’s simply that it can be tedious and it takes time. If you only have one or two ends, this isn’t a big deal. However, if you’ve had to change colors a lot you could have many ends that need to be hidden. This is the reason that I have not one, but two granny square afghans that have yet to be joined. One of which I started over four years ago!
I told you that I am not going to lie. I hate weaving in ends. But… it is a necessary evil. It must be done. If you don’t weave in the tails your project will most likely unravel and all your hard work will be for nothing. Also, it is necessary to make your project look neat and tidy. And despite my bickering, it is easier than you think.
