How To Fasten Off

How to Fasten Off Yarn in Crochet

Once you've come to the end of your design, you'll want to ‘fasten off‘ or ’finish’ - or, putting it simply, cut the yarn and secure it so it won't unravel.

Fastening off is very simple, just make a chain, cut the yarn about 10cm away (4in in old money), draw through the loop and tighten - this will prevent unraveling.

All you need to do now is weave the tail through the stitches of the fabric to hide it. This can be easily done with your hook or a yarn needle.
