When it comes to closing up holes there really is no hard rule for how it's done. There is one technique that seems to work best for me. Here is a video from youtube, but I should let you know that this is not my video.
- You can choose to go inside to outside, like shown in the video, or outside to inside. Personally, I do outside to inside for a nice seamless finish.
- Use your tapestry needle and your yarn tail to weave the end shut.
- Use the front loops only to gather up the outside layer of the work and make it close up neatly.
- Weave the end down into the ball to make the end lay flat.
I hope this little post helped you. Check back tomorrow for my pros and cons of crocheting all in one piece, or what I call top-down crochet!
