So I learned to crochet boarders around things I have knitted (squares for dishcloths, afghans, etc) but I don't know what to do with the yarn when I'm done. Do I need to somehow connect the first and last stitch? How do I weave it in?

Thanks so much for all your help!

Most times you join with a slip stitch into the first stitch or chain stitch that you began the edging with.
Then you cut the yarn with the last loop still on the hook . Cut the yarn leaving about 6 inches, then yarn over draw through the loop (all 6 inches). Remove hook and pull the cut end of yarn. You have closed the last loop and you weave the end in just like you would if you were knitting.

Thank you so much! That makes sense now that you explained it.... I couldn't make it work out in my head though....
