This tutorial teaches how to weave in ends perfectly that won’t come undone. It works for any crochet or knitting projects. There are 2 ways to weave in ends which is shown in a detailed video tutorial below.

I remember when I first started to learn how to crochet. I was excited and so happy whenever I learned a new stitch and was able to follow the pattern to the T and it came out perfectly. The stitches were great, the tension was good but the ends were not woven in. 

Secure Way to Weave in Ends in Crochet

Why? Because I had trouble, like thousands of other crocheters, figuring out how to do that without it coming undone. I googled and tried many different versions and was never happy. Some of the tutorials showed a maze of how to weave in the ends; other ones were just too loose and made my ends show the moment I started using my new project.

So, I came up with a quick but very secure way of weaving in the ends. It does not take too long but also does not come undone. In the years that I have been crocheting, I have never had issues with my ends showing up again or my projects coming undone.

And on top of that, you won’t even see where the ends are woven in. The looks seamless and just simply perfect.

Leave your frustrations behind and finally learn how to weave in your ends perfectly. I will teach you 2 ways to do that. One way is a shorter version but very effectively, and the other way takes a bit longer but can actually be a bit more sturdy and stronger than the first.

I prefer using the shorter version most of the time. But I will always use the longer version for thicker yarn or projects where there are many gaps and holes due to the stitches used that make the project lacy.

The Most Important Part of All when Weaving in the Ends – Crochet Sew-in Ends

So, let’s get your finished projects that need their ends to be woven in. Also, grab a tapestry needle and a pair of scissors. Let’s get started.

First, thread your end through your tapestry needle and then weave in your ends through the tight tunnel that is created when you crocheted your stitches. Next, move over the tapestry needle just a little bit and then weave the end the same way back.

You are still not finished yet. Now, move over one row down and repeat the same process. After you finished you have a zig-zag of a woven end that you can’t see. Now be sure to not pull your ends a lot when creating the zig-zag. However, after you finished weaving it in, just pull a bit more than normal and cut your yarn. You should now have your ends woven in and can’t see them.

If that was not very clear to you, don’t get frustrated, as I created a very detailed video tutorial for it below. I lead you through this process step by step. I even show you the second, longer, version of how to weave in your ends, too.

For the longer and more sturdy version of the shorter one mentioned above, you simple need to split your ends in half. Next, weave in your split ends in 2 different spots. Again, weave them in the same way as I mentioned above – in a zig zag style. That creates a more secure hold, even though it takes longer and is double the work.

This way of weaving in your ends is ideal for thicker yarn and more lacy projects. It prevents the projects to be bulky or have the ends shown more visibly.

I do not know if most people weave in the ends, like I do, but I have never had issues when I did it this way and created this technique on my own. It might be a common technique used, but I’m not sure. As it works for me, I wanted to make sure I share it with you also.

I understand that weaving in ends can be hard to understand through words and a few pictures. So, I created a very detailed, but a short video for you so you can learn both the mentioned techniques easy and quick (see above).

Finally, you will have a way to get your projects done with a peace of mind knowing your project will not come undone. Especially, if you sell, gift or donate your crochet projects you want to make sure your ends will stay secure where they need to be.

See what Angela, from my crochet group, said: “…Just today alone, I was speaking to a friend and mentioned this group to her because she’s having a hard time emotionally. I told her she needed to join so she can learn some cool crochet techniques and keep herself busy. You’re my first “go-to” group. Not only do you have some amazing ideas… But it’s you as a person that I can relate to. You’re kind, generous, and probably take things to heart more than you should (I do that too lol)… But you’re awesome! …”
