This video tutorial will show you how to join a new ball of yarn to your knitting or crochet by making an invisible knot. This knot is very strong and leaves no ends to weave in.

    Any hints on how to use something like this with 2 different colors??

    I don't do colour work often, so I'm afraid I have no hints for joining 2 colours... I'm sure it's doable!

    what a great tutorial :) thanks. i'm just wondering if it would hold with 50% acrylic 50% wool blend?

    I've used it for wool/acrylic blends.

    Magic Knot indeed!! I wish I had known of this tutorial before I began this baby's afghan, that's I'm finishing this evening. With the exception of the last yarn join, I have many frayed ends that I must weave in ... ugh!! Thanks so much for your video,

    I've a question. Does it work with socks and gloves, as well, as afghans, hats, and sweaters? Or, will one "feel" the knot when wearing either gloves or socks that have a yarn join?

    You can use this technique for any of your projects. If you are overly concerned about the knot being felt by the wearer for socks and mitts just use careful placement such as the back of the hand or the top of the foot...

    hi Jane! i was hoping you would make a tutorial on weaving in the ends liek when it comes to making cowls using straight needles (i dont have circulars i am comfortable with and frankly it intimidates, i make a lot of mistakes)

    I used these knots on 2 identical shawls. Worked OK on first shawl but came apart on second shawl. I don't think any mistakes were made, and I tested the knots. I just think the ends were clipped a wee bit closer on the second shawl and the knots relaxed and came untied.

    I always test the knot by pulling very hard at both ends. Maybe you didn't make the knots correctly.

    I just used this yarn - following directions exactly - with a superwash wool sock yarn. It did not work. After knitting a few inches, I discovered that the knots worked loose because the ends were clipped so short. I won't be using this method again.

    Thank you for this video tutorial!! It helped me really well.

    this is so lovely, i was wondering if you think this doubly works because you technically are knitting in a new ball of yarn, and if its wool (like i am using) it'll felt, and kinda just mat together?
