    when teaching crochet

    When teaching a beginner how to end off I don't know if it would be good to have the person ch 1 before cutting and pulling the yarn to end off or just to pull the loop on the hook without the ch 1 to end off. I've done it both ways.
    That's how she does it on the video - with a ch 1 to end off the crochet. I used to always ch 1 to end off but now I don't always ch 1 before ending my work.

    I always ch 1 when ending off. Just need the assurance it won’t slip. Have done repairs for non crocheters where the ending off slipped out during use or laundering. imalefty

    I was not taught to finish with the chain one. I just work the tail into the item and never had a problem with unraveling.
