Tapestry needles are an essential tool that’s needed to finish a crochet project, such as a crocheted baby blanket or hat. In this video, Corrina Ferguson explores a variety of tapestry needles to help you choose which one is best for you and your project.
To begin, Corrina notes that a tapestry needle is used to weave in the yarn tails on a project and to seam together crochet pieces. Many craft stores sell sets of tapestry needles that are available in a small travel case, making them convenient to put in your crochet bag. The needles can be metal or plastic or have a straight or bent tip. Corrina prefers the bent tip needles because it’s easier to get the needle into the crochet stitches to bury or weave in the ends.
Corrina also shows small plastic finishing needles. These are useful when you have a short yarn tail on a project, as they can easily be worked through the stitches with the small yarn tail threaded inside.
