Click here for a guide to creating the vine detail with an Darning Needle.
Using just a bodkin (a blunt darning needle), here’s how you secure your beautiful vine.
Let’s Get Into It!
Whether you made your vine using the crochet or the embroidery methods, you will finish up at this exact point.
With a short strand of yarn left, thread your bodkin.
Have you picked up your copy yet?
In the image below, my needle is resting on the spot where I would insert it IF I was making another petal stitch.
DON’T go in there.
Instead, lift the last petal made up a little and insert bodkin into the fabric in front of it.
From the Wrong Side, pull yarn to tighten loop.
That little stitch will hold the last petal in place without adding any bulk to the end of your vine.
But we now must secure that end on the Wrong Side of the glove so it doesn’t come loose.
After that, carefully trim the end.
Once all your ends are woven in and your pieces have been gently blocked (if you’re into that sort of thing), it’s time to sew up your panels to complete your gorgeous new gloves!
