Magic Knot

The magic knot is a fantastic way to join yarns together, without having all those pesky ends of weave in after! Surely that’s makes it even more perfect?! It’s super secure and I promise, it won’t come undone!

With your new yarn (blue), place the tail together with that of your working yarn (pink).

Pass the tail of the new yarn under the working yarn and bring it up. Make a loop and tie a knot tightly.

With the tail of the old yarn, bring it over that of the new yarn and back under. Make a loop and knot it tightly.

Your yarn should now look like this:

Pull each strand of yarn to bring the knots closer to each other until the meet. Give the yarn a good pull (be careful not to snap them though!) and carefully snip the remaining ends as close to the knot as possible.

It’s a good idea to give the knot a little year once you’ve finished joining to make sure it’s secure.

And that’s all there is to it! Once you get the hang of it, it’s a really easy technique and saves so much time weaving in ends!
