When making amigurumi style toys, the pieces are crocheted separately, stuffed and then joined, which means there are a lot of yarn tails to hide.
When making toys for small children, it is important to fasten all yarn tails securely. This tutorial will show how to fasten the yarn tail with a knot and hide inside a piece.
|1. Finish sewing. Bring the yarn up through
|2. Insert the needle under one loop of a stitch right next to the hole.|
|3. Pull until you have a small loop.
||4. Make a double knot. Do not push the first knot close to the fabric.|
|5. Cut off the loop end.
||6. Insert the needle into the same hole, going up and through the piece.|
|7. Pull lightly until the knot disappears into
|8. Pull lightly on the yarn tail and cut it off close to the fabric.

Thank you so much. Your photos and tutorials are great. I never knew how to make a nose and hide the tail. Very clear pictures. Also very thoughtful to show left and right handed.
