I am knitting a scarf with wide stripes. Rather than break the yarn and weave in a hundred ends, can I carry the yarn up the side and then use crochet to hide the loops?
I have tried to figure out how to do this. I have also fancied the idea of adding a kind of selvage to the sides and sewing the edge closed somehow… kind of making a tiny tube along the sides that can hide the loops.
I am pretty new to crochet and have only been knitting for about a year.
I have problems with the ends I weave in always working their way free at the tip. I can weave the ends back in, but when I give away scarves, I don’t know that the recipient will do this and will stop wearing the scarf because of ratty ends coming out.
