Illustrator: Different stroke weight on a line path?

How to have a different stroke weight on a single line path? I came across this video — what is the process to create that clock needle? Thanks.

Exact time for my question is 6:16 to 6:24.

You can round the corners of the strokes using Stroke properties. And 2nd method works on closed stroke paths like circle too.
