O'kay, I screwed up:-(.  In making a baby blanket, when I switched yarns in many places, I cut the ends short.  What is the best way to conceal the ends that are short?  I'd say they are 1/2 inch.

Thank you!

Dear Saintxmom,

Turn the blanket over to the wrong side. Use a crochet hook to carefully weave the ends into stitches on the wrong side of the work.  If the blanket is made with natural fibers such as wool or cotton, as you weave the ends in, split the stitch you weave them into.  The first time the blanket is washed, the ends will slightly ravel and blend into the stitches they are woven into.
