Weaving in Ends as you Knit or Crochet

I’m an odd knitter and don’t mind weaving in ends so I don’t usually use this one, but I know most knitters and crocheters don’t so here’s a tip to help with that. 

Crocheting

Knitting

Felted Join

This is another way to not have to weave in ends.  It only works with feltable yarns.  No plant fibers, no manmade fibers, and no superwash, these will NOT felt.

With Hot Water

With Spit

Bread Tie Yarn Spools

This is great for intarsia knitting especially if you have a small picture you are adding to your work and for crochet when you have small sections of color.

Long Tail Cast On Help

To help you estimate how much yarn you need for the long tail cast on, simply wrap the yarn around the needle for however many stitches you need.  Be sure you leave a long enough tail to weave in ends.

I hope these help to make knitting and crocheting more enjoyable for you.  To be sure to never miss a blog post be sure to add Fairy Tale Knits blog to your favorite blog reader.  Here is my the url for my RSS feed.
