I confess I’m not great at weaving in ends. Sometimes it’s hard to decide exactly where to put them, or it can get tricky in colorwork knitting to hide them in the right places. And I suffer from end creep. A lot.
Jane Richmond is clearly much better at weaving in ends than I am, and she shared her tips and tricks at Very Shannon as part of her summer sweater knitalong.
You should click through and check out all her tips, but her hidden ends are basically worked in duplicate stitch, which is a great way to do it.
She shows how to work in ends on both the knit side and the purl side, using contrasting and matching yarn, so you can see how to do it and also see how much you can’t really see it when it’s done.
In addition she has a great visible way of weaving in ends that gets them out of the way but makes them really easy to pull out if you find you need to rip up the knitting at some point.
How do you weave in ends? I do sometimes do the duplicate stitch method but have never gotten into the habit of doing it all the time. Maybe I need to try harder!
