In this quick tutorial, I’m going to show you how to do the invisible finish when crocheting in the round.
Instead of having an awkward knot on the edge of your work…
…the invisible finish leaves a smooth edge with no detectable beginning or end.
Here’s how it’s done.
After working the last stitch in the final round of your work, do NOT join to the top of your turning chain. Instead, cut the yarn leaving a 6-inch tail and pull it through the last stitch.
Thread the yarn tail into a yarn needle, then go to the top of your turning chain, thread the tail through it — in the same place where you would insert your hook if joining with a slip stitch — and then pull the edge together.
Next, thread the tail back through the top of the last stitch.
This forms a stitch on the edge that looks identical to the stitches before and after it.
Now you can weave in your end as you usually do. That’s all there is to it!
