Short and simple question

Finished my scarf - AT LAST! Picture will follow soon.

Only thing I have left to do is tie up the little tails of yarn left at the beggining and end.

Is there a speciall way of doing that? Do I just tie a secure knot and cut?


Many people don’t like tying knots to secure the ends because they’re usually visible. If you go here and watch the first video, there’s a part on weaving in your loose ends.

[color=darkblue]I’m new but was told to leave my tails about 7 inches long or so. The ends of yarn can be woven into your knitting. Thread a darning needle with the end of the yarn and run it in and out a stitch at a time up through one stitch and down through another in an inconspicuous place on the back side for an two or three inches. Some go longer. :slight_smile: Clip the excess yarn.


Another video… about halfway down THIS PAGE is a video called “Duplicate stitch join”. The techniques are the same for weaving in your ends. I had a hard time trusting that when I started knitting, but it really is the best way to do it!
