Yay! We’re almost finished crocheting our dragons! How’s yours coming along?
Today, I’ll show you two ways to keep stuffing out of those final stitches of your dragon bottom.
Use your non-dominant hand
The easiest way to keep stuffing out of your stitches for the last few rounds is to use the index finger of your non-hook-holding hand to push the stuffing out of the way of your hook as you crochet. You don’t need any extra tools, but it can make the final rounds slow-going.
Insert a piece of white felt
Another way to keep stuffing out of the way of your stitches is to cut a circle of white felt, and insert it into your work. I tuck the felt circle in at around the 3rd-to-last round. The felt will hold the stuffing on the inside, giving you a clear path to crocheting those last rounds!
Which is your fave?
It doesn’t matter which technique you choose… as long as it works for you!
