Weaving in Ends in Ribbing

Information on things you’ll see in this video:

The sweater I’m wearing is my Ombre Dyed Sweater, pattern + video tutorial.

The sweater on the mannequin is my Zasio Sweater Coat, pattern + video tutorial.

The nail color I’m wearing is by OPI, called “Nein! Nein! Nein! OK, Fine!”

My watch ring is made by Davis.

Sorry – I don’t know the yarn I’m using in the sample. But the needles I’m using are Crystal Palace Bamboo Double-Pointed needles.

  1. Great tip, thanks! I’m also really fussy about weaving in ends, and this looks just perfect. Now……how about weaving in ends in seed/moss stitch? I’ve tried lots of things, but nothing really satisfies me. Just an idea for your next “weaving in ends” series of videos.

    thanks,
    Karen

  2. Hi Karen – funny you should request that. :) I’m working on the schedule for the next shoot, and “Weaving in Ends in Seed Stitch” is at the top of the list. I’ll also be doing one on garter stitch.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Keep ‘em coming!

  3. I enjoy your videos. Do you ever end the weaving by tying a knot at the end of the yarn? I was always afraid that if I didn’t knot my yarn, it would unravel at some point. Thanks

  4. Hi Lucy – yes, I do sometimes tie knots. I demonstrate this in my video “Weaving in Cotton Ends”.

  6. Your videos are the best on the web–I see you wear so many different lovely sweaters in them–where can we purchase the patterns?

  7. Thanks, Donna. I have most of the things you’ll see in the videos (including the sweater I’m wearing and the one on the mannequin) listed just below the video in my blog post, and in the “video description” field on YouTube. Many of my older videos don’t include this information, but most everything can be found in my Ravelry notebook:

    Hope that helps!

  8. I just wanted to thank you for posting this video. I had watached it a while ago but all the recent projects that I have done have been ribboned. I have used what you showed here so many times. It has been clarified how to finish off projects.

  9. Hi – Your videos are terrific – precise and to the point. I have watched your video on weaving in ends in ribbing and Otis good. I have a problem that I can’t figure out. The ribbing, which is beautiful. Is in six colors. Definitely worth the time to do. But the ribbing!! Weaving in all those ends is leaving the ribbing totally un-streatchable. The sweater is done, cardigan, with only the weaving, assembly and blocking to do. Can you help?

  10. Jackie – you watched my video, correct? I show how to weave in ends vertically in the ribbing, which should keep from reducing the stretch.
