Tuesday’s Tip – How to Keep Your Crochet from Unraveling

Share Button

I tend to throw my projects into my bag with much less care than I should. Luckily, with knitting, I am often working on circulars, which can be tied into a knot, keeping the project safely on the needles.

With crochet, I don’t have that option. So before tossing my crochet project into my bag, I add something to the working loop to keep it from unraveling. The easiest item to use is a locking stitch marker. But, in a pinch, I have also used paper clips, twist ties and bobby pins.

    Thanks for the awesome tip – I just started crocheting (as in, a few days ago), so this is unbelievably timely & helpful!

    I use locking stitch markers to mark knitting errors, so that I can drop down & fix them on the next pass. I keep hoping I won’t need them so often but thus far, they’re pretty frequently used!  🙂

    I don’ t put that much effort into it. I pull up a large loop on the last stitch and tie a loose knot. No extra equipment needed.

    What type of stitch is used in the yellow item?
