Knitting Tips - Weaving in Ends 

Leave a tail of yarn about 8" long. Using a yarn needle (which has a large eye and a blunt tip), weave the yarn in and out of a row of stitches on the back of the knitting. If you are working in cotton, linen, or silk, this will tend to slip out when the knitting is stretched. To prevent this, double back and go back through the same stitches, putting the point of the needle through the yarn you already wove in. This will lock it in place so it can't pull out. If you have trouble splitting the yarn with the blunt yarn needle, try a sharp sewing needle with a large eye, such as an embroidery needle.
