This is a quick and easy tutorial about a quick and easy way to join a new ball of yarn to your project without making a knot.
We’ve already discussed several ways to join yarn, but the method explained in this tutorial makes a much neater join without any effort at all. No fiddling with the yarn tails and no tying one yarn to the other.
Let’s see how this simple method works step by step.
To watch these steps in a quick video tutorial, follow this link.
As you see, the yarn is joined seamlessly, without any knots or added bulk. Once you weave in the tails, the place of join will become almost invisible.
Of course, it is very much visible in my swatch because I attached yarn in a contrasting colour, but the join looks very neat when the yarns are of the same colour.
This method works great for joining a new ball of yarn both when we work back and forth and when we work in the round. Plus, we can use this approach to attach the yarn at the beginning of a row or in the middle of a project.
