How to Finish a Crochet Pattern: Weaving in Ends

How to Finish a Crochet Pattern: Weaving in EndsJust when you thought your masterpiece was completely finished after all those hours of sleepless nights and cramped hands and wrists, you realize you have all those ends to weave in. You then take a deep breath and let out a sigh of grief while you stare out to nothing wishing the ends would weave in themselves. Not to fret anymore, we have the easiest way to finish a crochet pattern with weaving in ends. However, if you're not quite ready to weave in ends, but you're still learning to crochet, we also have a guide on how to read crochet patterns.

The good news about weaving in ends is that there are multiple ways to do it, so you can always find what works for you. The downfall about there not being a right or wrong way to do it is that you might end up doubting yourself. To avoid this doubt we are making it easy to finish a crochet pattern with one simple way of weaving in ends. You need just one tool to weave in ends: a darning needle. Grab your need and thread the end of the yarn through the eye. You can then thread your darning needle horizontally across the row. For best results you can go in and out of each stitch so that the leftover yarn will blend nicely. Once you go about two inches or so just pull the end of the yarn slightly for any access yarn and cut it. Your yarn will then sit nicely within your crochet pattern without the fear of it unraveling since it was woven within the stitches. It is always recommended to leave around six inches when starting the first chain of your crochet pattern; same recommendation applies when finishing a row or a round.


Place darning needle around each stitch and pull through:

Or place the needle through the top part of the stitches (where it looks like a V). You can see the difference in the last photo.

Another way to weave in ends is to use the weaving technique. Go into the first stitch, grab the yarn and pull through. You'll then put your hook through the next stitch, grab the yarn and then pull through, having your yarn thrown over each time so the access yarn is on top of each stitch. You'll then want to form a knot with itself, pull the project tight and cut off any access yarn. The video below will help you understand this technique a bit better. Once your ends are weaved in you can then enjoy your fantastic crochet masterpiece.

This is a great aid. I teach my friends how to crochet and I use tutorials and helpful tips. This will go a long to helping me. I can get them to come here and save this. They won't have to call me at a weird hour to ask how to fix it!

Darn that autocorrect access should be excess and weaves should be woven

Thanks for the information! I have always struggled with trying to finish off my crocheting and hoping it looks nice and hopefully will not come untied! Blessings, Helen

Good video. Clear instructions and explanations. I have always just pulled the loose ends randomly through nearby stitches. Thank you.
