I started this granny square by making a double ring.
(not the traditional joined chain)

Does the end need to be weaved in?
I'm thinking I can just snip it off because it's already weaved in.

All opinions welcome!!

I, personally, like to be extra sure my work won't unravel so I like to hide the yarn under at least a few stitches before snipping off the tail. Wink

I'm not familiar with this technique but I'm way too familiar with ends unweaving themselves so I'd weave it in just to be sure it doesn't start to unravel.

I weave in the ends of my magic rings.  I do at least an inch or two, just in case.

Oh, it's just a normal magic ring? Buhh  Roll Eyes my mind is bogged down from art classes. But yeah, I weave in EVERYTHING. I've also heard a dab of glue will help keep things together.

I use the double ring all the time and I always weave it through the loops two times.  By two times, I mean going through all the loops in that ring twice.

Hope this helps!

My general rule of thumb when weaving in ends is to make sure to go in at least two directions.  So, in this case, I would definitely weave in that end, and since you've already covered it with your stitches, I'd suggest weaving it in going in the opposite direction, being very careful that you're not just undoing it.  I'd weave up a stitch then weave it back through the base of the next round of stitches.

Thanks everyone!!

100% say to weave in the end.
That's what I'll be doing.

I know this doesn't help much now, but maybe in the future.

When I work with a magic ring, I pull it tight once I get the first round in and after (joining or not/depending on the pattern)or doing the first couple stitches of the next round...I try to weave in the ring end while I'm crocheting so that I'll only have to weave in the end on the final round.

Not sure if anyone else does this, but I haven't really had too many problems with the hole coming open. Smiley

Regardless of how I started I always try to pull the starting tail up through a stitch and work over it on the next row for a few stitches, then drop the end, then, if I'm back that way again (when working back and forth, for example), I do it again in the next row.

It doesn't work in all patterns, but I find it does work in most.  It cuts down a lot on the number of ends to weave in.  In most cases I'm left only with the one at the end that needs a yarn needle to weave it in. ^_^
