The stitches you need to weave your ends into may not always be uniformly knit or purl. In the event that you are working with ribbed or textured fabric, you may have to combine several different methods of darning (weaving) to create the best effect. Here are some tips to consider:
  • Try to avoid having ends at all in lace knitting.
  • If you do have ends in an openwork or lacy pattern, try to situate them close to the edge or a block of solid stitches that you can work them into.
  • Weave your cast on tail into the cast on row and your bind off tail into the bound off stitches.
  • When weaving ends in ribbed fabric, be sure to stretch the fabric out gently so that the weaving does not cause it to gather.
