I have question, wouldn't you have to tie it off so it doesn't slip out? I would think that it would easily break or unravel if you do it that way, I tie the yarn off and hide the knot but that takes forever.
thank you so much for this! I moved away from the woman who taught me crochet, and my mum doesn't know tricks like this, so this added to my crocheting experience a ton I'm using it with my friend's scarf and I'm sure she'll like it even more like this now
question: if it's going between two colors, how do you switch the colors back and forth without leaving random strings around? I hope that makes sense.
I usually don't mind loose ends and random strings - You can pick up a plastic yarn needle at wal-mart or a craft store and weave the loose ends into the scarf. They are ridiculously inexpensive and all those random strings won't be noticeable at all. (:
Thanks for the help. I'm currently crocheting a blanket with words on it. Changing color is not a problem with me. Keeping the loose ends and the long stands of unused yarn on the wrong side is my problem. I have the long strand of unused on the both sides. How do I keep them on the back side? And how do I trim the unused yarn without it falling to pieces? I hope all that made sense....
