How to weave in tails in garter st

In this DROPS video we show how you can weave in tails in garter stitch.

Always weave in your tails on the wrong side of your knitted garter stitch piece. With the needle and yarn follow the stitches sideways over 2 rows. Halfway through video we show you the same thing with a contrasting yarn to make it easier to follow.

As you can see with this method your weaved in tail will not show on your right side.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

What do you do with the tail after you've sewn it in? Should I cut it? How long should it be? I love your patterns and all the instructional videos!

Dear Mrs Eich, after you have weave in tails from WS, you can cut the yarn, make sure to have weaved several sts - as shown in the video - to secure your work. Happy knitting!
