I’ve been working on a cute little intarsia sweater for the last few weeks, in between last-minute holiday gifts and a much larger, more complicated sweater project. It was a super quick knit, too, with easy to follow directions for knitting and finishing — but now I have to tackle those ends!
So cute. . .
Deep breath! No big deal. My plan is to get caught up on my tv watching and tackle those ends, one at a time, using my favorite finishing technique: duplicate stitch. When worked on the right side, duplicate stitch is a handy way to add details like initials on holiday stockings and little hearts or flowers on a baby hat. On the wrong side, it’s a super stealthy, nearly invisible way to hide those ends. One trick to keep in mind for colorwork: weave the ends into sections of the same color.
