How to weave in tails in garter st

Keywords: garter stitch,

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.

The video above can be used in the following patterns

Bonjour Mme Bell, pour ce châle, vous commencez par 3 mailles et, après avoir tricoté les rangs 1 à 5, vous répétez les rangs 2 à 5, autrement dit, vous diminuez au début de chaque rang 3 et vous augmentez à la fin de chaque rang 3 (= le nombre de mailles reste le même), et vous augmentez 2 mailles à la fin de chaque rang 5. Répétez ces rangs jusqu'à ce qu'il y ait 200 mailles. Bon tricot!

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!
