Weaving in ends as you go
★★★ - Advanced
We crocheters are always looking for ways to deal with those pesky ends as quickly and easily as possible. If you have a real aversion to sewing in those ends, this could be the method for you.
I personally find this using this technique a little fiddly, but I have to admit, no ends to sew in is a very attractive benefit and it might be just the thing you are looking for. It'll also be a life-saver to you if you really hate to get your yarn needle out, or for some reason you don't have one with you. You can deal with the ends using just your hook and your crochet stitches.
PART ONE: DEALING WITH THE END OF THE OLD COLOUR
Pull the end of the yarn through the loop completely. Then flip the end from the front to the back of your work.
PART TWO: WEAVING IN THE NEW END AS YOU GO (GRANNY CROCHET)
crocheting over the ends as you make the stitches. Once you get to the last treble (double) of the corner, stop before the stitch is completed. You want to be at the stage where you only need to wrap the yarn once more and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook.
(For more help with the square construction see my Granny Square tutorial)
Carry on working stitches and flipping the yarn end to the back and front of the work to bring it to the top or bottom of the stitches and trap it in the work.
