weaving in tails
hello, fine knitters,

just wondering if there's, like, a real way to weave in tails. i confess that when i do it, i just make it up and try to hide the little tail as well as i can, but it doesn't always look good, especially on scarves.

i just finished a scarf with an inch of garter stitch on either end. does anyone have any favorite methods for tail weaving?

thanks much.
happy wednesday.

I think there is a video here in KH, but I can't find it. Give this site a try.

You mean there's actually a technique for that??? I've always just meandered down around a few rows. Learn something new every day!

I just duplicate stitch them in. When I'm on ribbing, I just weave them in and out of the column of knit stitches.

Here is a link to the instructions.

It is also called Swiss Darning, and instead of using a different color, I just use the tail yarn. With this you have to leave about a 10" tail.
