If you prefer videos, these are easy to follow and very informative. Created by Jennifer over at Fiber Flux:
As you see in the videos, one technique being used is the back weave finish. Run your yarn behind the stitches of a nearby row, miss one stitch and run the stitches back again.
Whip stitching is another way to keep your ends in place. While this is an easy finishing technique, be sure to whip-stitch on the wrong side of your work. This is more suited to sweaters or hats, where it’s unlikely to see the inside of your project.
Moogly has a great video of the whip stitch technique and you can see exactly where the thread goes. Created by Tamara Kelly: Many thanks!
An easy way to keep loose ends to a minimum is to take the loose end with you as you work.
*Try to leave tails on your work that are long enough to weave in and always be careful when you cut that yarn. You don’t want to cut your project by accident.
*Weave your ends in before blocking a project.
