We often think that the process of weaving in yarn ends is boring. The truth is – it is one of the most creative tasks in knitting. It is a lot like freeform embroidery, but unlike the classic embroidery, we want to make our needlework invisible.

A huge advantage of a creative approach to weaving in yarn ends is that we can use this seemingly mundane process to fix holes and other imperfections in the areas that are close to the strand we are hiding. For example, we can easily fix holes in the underarms of a top-down sweater by making a few simple overhand stitches before we weave in a yarn tail in that part of the project.
