How to anchor the yarn with your first stitch:

Cut a long piece of yarn and double it over like this and weave onto the needle.

Push the needle through your first stitch from back of work to front of work.

Don’t pull all the way through, leave the loop on the back side like this.

Work through the next stitch and push the needle from front to back, pulling the yarn as you go. Make sure to hold down the loop in the back so it doesn’t come out.

Now take the needle and pull it through the loop in the back and pull the yarn all the way through the loop.

Tighten the stitch and now your yarn is anchored to your piece. You should do this every time you work with a new strand. I usually work stitches until I have a 6 in. tail remaining (enough to weave in) then I start a new strand. For this project, I used a 40 in. strand doubled over each time.
