Every knitter and crocheter's goal is to make sure that their projects will not unravel. Saying that, we always make sure that tying the new balls of yarns are secure and invisible if possible. Here are some best methods of joining yarns:
- Spit Splicing. This technique of joining yarn are only works with animal fibers such wool, alpaca or camel. Below is a video tutorial by Staci of Very Pink Knits showing us how to do the spit splicing method.
- Russian Join. This technique of joining yarn is ideal when you're working on cotton or acrylic yarn. Again, Staci will show us how to do the Russian join method.
- Double Knot Method. This technique of joining yarn is very strong and leaves no end to weave. But make sure you do it correctly! Here's a video of Jane Richmond showing us how to do the double knot method.
- Flawless Yarn Join. This technique of joining yarn is very strong, leaves no end to weave and it works great even with slippery yarns! Below is a video tutorial by Dorianna Rivelli of Lavender Chair showing us how to do the "Flawless Yarn Join" method.
I hope everybody enjoyed this post and will give everyone a peace of mind in not thinking their handmade projects will survive after it gets washed! Which of these techniques have you already tried?
