I’ve been asked quite a few times to demonstrate how I weave in my ends, so without further ado here’s my method.
Also remember, inspirational colour palettes can be found everywhere, even via a pair of shoes!
The ‘Lindsay’ striped espadrille wedge by Kate Spade boasts a fun, colourful palette to draw inspiration from for this exercise.
The best advice I can give when it comes to weaving in the ends of your project is DON’T skimp and snip!
After investing your time and money, ensure to go the extra mile and securely weave in the ends. You’ll be disappointed if your project begins to unravel!
You’ll need a large eyed needle and a small pair of sharp scissors.
Firstly, I always work ‘in’ or ‘over’ any tails, securing them as I work.
Applying the rule above, the first ‘tail’ that’s good to simply snip is the one that I’ve worked ‘over’ on the first round, it’s secure so simply snip.
Referring to the image below I weave the next ‘tail’ through three stitches,
and draw through as shown below.
Then I weave the same ‘tail’ through the ‘cluster’ of ‘stitches’ below where I first weaved as shown.
Snip, and the first round of ends are secure!
Next, let’s take care of the red ends. Repeat as before,
Finish with weaving through the adjacent ‘cluster’ of ‘stitches’ as shown in the image below.
DO NOT snip just yet!
Next, weave in the remaining end as shown in the image below.
Gently pull on both ends to adjust the tension then snip!
That’s the way I weave in my ends!
