How do you add a new ball of yarn when knitting?
Knit three or four stitches with both yarns held together, leaving a tail of a few inches on each ball. Then drop the old yarn and continue knitting with the new yarn. Once you’ve knit a couple of rows after the join, gently tug the work to even out the tension a bit.
How do I start a new skein of yarn?
Insert your thumb and another finger of both hands into each end of the skein. Try to squeeze the skein so your fingers touch, giving you the ability to find the center of the skein. You can then pull the center out with one hand; you’ll also be pulling out extra yarn with it, but one end of the skein should be there.
Does the magic knot ever come undone?
If you’ve discovered a real knot at the beginning of your row, then it’s really easy. All you need to do here is cut the knot out and re-join the yarn as you would if you were joining a new ball. Magic Knot: It truly is a magical knot that won’t come undone!
