Please help!!!!!

I am knitting an afghan for our granddaughter as a high school graduation gift. Each square is individually knit & then is to be joined when all squares are finished.

Each square has at least 2 different colors but usually more colors. Needless to say, I have many, many lose ends where I have added another color. It will take me forever to work these ends into the afghan &, also, the "wrong" side of the afghan will not be attractive.

What should I do?

Should a knit a solid piece & attach it on the back, sew material as a backing or what is your suggestion?

Thank you ~ Cherie

Hi Cherie

If it was me I would just weave in the tails with a sewing needle making sure that the tails were hidden in rows of the same colour.

But there may be other visitors to this site with other ideas that could solve your problem so I have decided to ask them to help out with your question if they can.

Hopefully one of them can assist by leaving their suggestions as a comment on this page.
