How to Fasten Off Yarn

Learn how to fasten off yarn when crocheting from Lion Brand Yarn's Andrea Lemire in this Howcast video.


Hey, I'm Andrea Lemire, the education coordinator here at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio. I'm going to show you some really cool techniques for beginning crochet, and hopefully, you'll have as much fun as I have with it. Okay, lets get started.

So, now we're going to fasten off. The first step: you're gonna cut your yarn. Make sure you leave a long tail. Because you're gonna have to sew that into the fabric at the end. So, now that I've cut my tail, I'm going to yarn over with the tail, pull through the loop on my hook and keep pulling until the whole tail comes through. And then just give a little tug to tighten that up.

And that's fastening off.
