Okay, I just finished my first-ever crocheting project...a scarf.  It's pretty.  But I'm stuck; I don't know how to finish it off.  The directions in the book I have aren't very clear.  Does anyone know of a good website with some pictures of how to do this? 

Thanks!

All you have to do is chain one, cut the yarn, then pull the end all the way through the chain, then pull it tight.  At least that's how I finish off, not sure if there are other ways, still new here myself Smiley

I do it the same way - chain 1, cut yarn, pull through and then use a needle to sew the end in.  When I sew the end in, I run the needle through 5 or 6 stitches (on the wrong side) and then pull the yarn through and sometimes if I want to make the end really secure, I will sometimes go back the other way with the yarn too.
