Joining yarns with a 'Magic Knot' technique

Hi all

I was taught this technique for joining two yarns together to form a very well hidden knot by my friend Mary last year.

I must admit I was very skeptical that it would work, I fully expected the knot to simply come undone, but they don't and I've been using it ever since as a quick and easy way to join yarn.

I've found that it does not work with the fancy yarns like tinsel or any that are very shiny, but otherwise it works well and it is lovely not having to sew in all those yarn ends into the back of work!

It is not easy to put into words how to do it so I've created a quick video tutorial which you can see here:

Hope you find this idea useful.

Happy crafting!
