To weave in ends with a crochet hook, you slide your hook under a few stitches. Then, you grab the loose end and draw it through those stitches. This method is ok if your project is in loose double crochet stitches and quite thick yarn.
Do you weave in ends before blocking?
Here’s my rationale: you need to wash and block pieces before you sew up, and since—see below—a seam is my favorite place to weave in an end, you need to have seamed the garment.
