The invisible join and fasten off in crochet is by far my favorite crochet trick and one of the tricks I featured in my Fab Four Crochet Techniques That Will Bring Your Craft to the Next Level here. When you fasten off the usual way, the point at with you joined and fastened off is often very obvious. But not with the invisible join and fasten off … it looks just like a stitch, so it’s virtually impossible to tell where the final join and fasten off was made!
Can you tell where the join is in this photo?
- After the last stitch of the round is completed, do not join; instead, cut the yarn and pull the tail all the way through the stitch (a).
- Next, thread the tail through a tapestry needle and insert the needle under the loops of the first stitch of the round (b). Pull yarn through gently.
- Then, insert your needle into the center of the last stitch of the round (c). Pull yarn through gently and weave in ends as usual.
