You are all finished with your crochet project. Â It looks fantastic. Â What you aren’t sure of is how you can finish this thing! Â What happens to the yarn? Â Do you just cut the end? Â What are all of the start and stop ends of yarn? Â Where do they go?
Let’s work these out together so your project can start being used instead of wait forever to be finished.
How to End a Crochet Project~
1) Â Do one slip stitch at the end of the row and pull your yarn through– Cut this yarn tail, then pull the tail through the loop. Â Pull it tight until it kind of knots or secures itself
2) Â Now you will see that you have two crochet tails- one at the beginning and one at the end.
2) Push your hook (you can change to a smaller size hook if it’s easier) through a couple of crochet loops in the project. Â Make sure you are not going all the way to the other side of the project. Â You will want to just go through the top loops of the crochet chain.
3) Â Pull the tail through the loops. You can repeat this a couple of times until you have traveled a bit from where the yarn started. Â Maybe tuck 2″ of yarn into the project.
4) Â Snip off any tail that is still showing after you have tucked it through the loops.
5) Â Repeat with any other yarn tails you spot. Â Your tail should be pretty hidden in the stitches.
Now that you know how to end a crochet project….you are ready to start a few newÂ ones?
