Finishing a Beanie: Weaving in the beginning yarn tail.
How to finish a beanie: weaving in the yarn tail at the beginning of the beanie.
At the top (beginning) of the beanie, thread the yarn tail into the needle. Insert the needle in a counterclockwise direction, placing the needle between the inner and outer stitches, so that it is invisible, both inside and outside.
Work between about 5 or 6 stitches at a time, working your way around the circle (counterclockwise). Notice how the circle closes as you proceed. When it feels secure, you are done! Cut the yarn close to the beanie.
The finished product! This will insure survival from handling and washing.
