I was wondering if anyone had any better or effective ways of weaving in ends on a piece that's double crocheted.  It's kinda hard because of all those holes and whatnot, and whenever I do it, it usually comes undone.  I read about the Russian Join in another post, and I think I'll try that in my next project.  The thing I'm worrying about right now is done, with the exception of all the ends sticking out. It's a gift for someone so I want it to look real nice.  Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.  Smiley

if you crochet in the front loops, you can weave the ends into the back loops, up through one, down through the next ---> / \ / \ / \ like that. i usually do that then pull the thread a tiny bit, clip it, then smooth the crochet back out  and the end slips in and stays hidden.

I'm still very new to crochet and almost done with my first project.  What do you mean by "clip it"?
