But I do not have woven in the ends on the go, so I have to sew them in now, before I can finish the garment.
Some of you mentioned that they are always weaving in the ends while knitting, even the master himself has sent me a message to do so.
If you are interested in the video Brandon Mably shows how to weave in ends on the go, here it is (the instructional part starts at 6:00):
Well I do know how to weave in ends on the go and I have used it more than once before:
Here are some projects, where I have used the technique Brandon shows in his video:
But for this garment I don’t wanted to use this technique, because of the yarn and the pattern.
First the yarn is 100% cotton and so much more slippery than wool.
Second you have to weave in ends almost every second row in this pattern and in one case you are starting a new colour with just one stitch. Which means you have to weave in 2 colours at once.
This leads to 2 major problems: it will slow down your knitting process more than you need time afterwards to sew in the ends and second, you don’t have enough control over the ends and where they will woven in.
The next pictures will show you how I weave in the ends in this project:
I thread an end on my darning needle and look for a stitch in the same colour.
I go through the loops formed by the stitches.
The last loop needs to be corrected!
Ready to be cut!
And another end:
For every end I do it always in the same way. Every end is sewn in at the similar place of the pattern to receive the best of the results.
Happy weaving in ends!
