Weaving in the ends of your crochet projects is an essential step to make sure that your work looks professional and stays together for years to come. The best way to weave in ends is to use a tapestry needle and thread the yarn tail behind a few stitches. To make it extra secure, bring the yarn tail over the last strand that it just went under, and then thread the yarn tail behind the same stitches in the opposite direction.
Weaving in ends in crochet can be a tedious task. To minimize the number of tails you need to weave in, you can crochet over a yarn tail you know you won't use. As you crochet the next round or row, just place the yarn tail on top of the top loops of whatever stitch you're crocheting into.
