Most people don’t like to weave in yarn ends in crochet or knitting. Here’s a way to avoid that. This is a tip that has been hugely popular on an old video, over a million views. With learning more about filming and editing all the time, I’m embarrassed by the quality of that video! Therefore it was time to create a new one.

I have a written explanation about how to proceed and the more detailed video is after that on the page.

How to join yarns

  • Leave the last 30 cm (12 inches) for the joining
  • Take the yarn end as well as the new yarn and cross them so there is 15 cm (6 in) left after the spot where you cross them
  • Fold both yarns so that there is a join in the middle
    Here is a photo for both crochet and knitting

  • Hold on to the yarn end and begin to crochet or knit using both strands of yarn
  • When you come to the join continue crocheting or knitting straight on to the new yarn held double
  • After crocheting/ knitting to the end of the doubled yarns cut off the small yarn ends
