Weave in ends (on reverse stockinette stitch)
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Weaving in your tail ends on the reverse (back) side of Stockinette stitch.
There are many ways to weave in ends. Here’s a simple way to weave them in securely so that they are almost invisible. This is my personal favorite way to accomplish this task because it hides beautifully in your work :).
- Back Side of Garter Stitch: (video to come), use the same method as is shown here for reverse stockinette stitch… There will simply be a gap between your ‘bumps’ and ‘valleys’ so don’t pull too tight!
- Double sided garter stitch: (this is for items like towels and dishcloths where you use both sides interchangeably) Check out my other post for a video and instructions for weaving in ends on double sided garter stitch

Steps for how to weave in ends on the reverse side of stockinette stitch:
*you can also use this method for garter stitch items which have a right and wrong side (do your weave in this way on the wrong side of your work).
- Follow a ‘bump’ (the part of the stitch that looks like a rainbow) over to the right… until you can see the ‘valley’ (the part of the stitch that looks like a smile) directly next to/below it… go down through the valley and tilt your needle to the left to also go down through the ‘bump’ which is just below and off to the left.
- now follow a ‘valley’ over to the ‘bump’ which is just to the right/up… go up through the ‘bump’, then tilt your needle to the left to also go up through the valley stitch which you came down through in the first step.
*continue these steps until you have woven your tail in at least 5 bumps (you can always do more for extra security).
That’s all there is to it! 🙂
