Not weave weave, but weave in ends.
I didn’t realize that alot of people don’t know how to do this so the ends stay secure and the weaving is flat. Thus, it doesn’t show when you are looking at the knit.
1.Identify where you need to weave and tighten the ends – look at the front to be sure it’s not too tight.
2. Cross them, this holds them together and stops you from having a gap there.
3. Weave in a diagonal fashion
4. Weave back diagonally
5. Do the same with the other side, but in the opposite direction – makes it flatter and helps hold the criss crossing you did a bit tighter – you don’t want it to slip and become a hole.
6. My join and weave is within that circle. And I assure that in real life it’s as flat as it seems.
On wool I use the spit splice. This technique here is something I usually only do for weaving in stripes, ends, and on materials that can’t be spit spliced (cotton).
