BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

To finish off a color, to end yarn or when stitching area is completed, DO NOT USE A KNOT. The back of the plastic canvas should look neat with no knots or loose ends.

HOW TO END THE YARN OR THREAD:
* Flip the canvas backside up
* Insert the needle and yarn through several completed stitches
* Pull yarn tight
* Trim yarn close to the canvas

The following example and the example above show how the back of the canvas should look when yarn or thread is anchored properly.
