Learn how to Crochet the Invisible Join

The Perfect Finish

This technique can be used both between rounds when fastening off a colour and joining the next colour, and at the end of your project.

  • When we use the invisible join changing colours in between rounds, the colour change will not be seen! We’ve all been there, when we’ve changed colour, only to see the slip stitch peeking through the last stitch in the previous round – so annoying! 
  • When we finish our projects with an invisible join, there is no visible ending!  Looking at the photo of the Running Rings Around Granny Coaster below, it is really hard to see where the round was finished and the ends woven in.

Traditionally, when we finish of a row or a round, we would make a chain after completing the final stitch, then pull the working yarn through the chain to create a little knot. It can then be quite a challenge to hide that knot! It leaves a lump and makes weaving in the ends that much more challenging. 

Read on to see how to complete the perfect finish with an invisible join and follow along with the video of the technique too. 

Make the Perfect Finish

Once you reach your final stitch in your project, complete it as normal but DO NOT join with a slip stitch to the beginning of the round. 

Leave your hook in the stitch and cut your yarn, leaving enough to safely weave in your ends.

Grab your darning needle

  • Using your hook, pull the cut yarn up through the final stitch.
  • Thread the yarn on to your darning needle and insert your needle under the 1st stitch of the round from front to back, and pull the needle and yarn through.
  • Insert your needle through the the middle of the last stitch completed, and out under the back loop of the stitch. 
  • This will look just like you’ve complete another stitch, making the join invisible. 
  • Weave in your end to finish the project

I know this technique will make a huge difference to your crochet confidence as your projects will have the perfect finish, every time!
