I am making a skirt out of very stretchy 100% nylon ribbon yarn. I noticed that every time I try it on for size the knots for joining a new ball of yarn are not staying secure. Is there a special way to treat joins for nylon so they won't slip out?
I saw this on DIY Knitty Gritty the woman sewed the two ends with matching thread so that there was no knot. I am also using a ribbon yarn and that is what I am doing and I can't find the joins on it.
Maybe someone else has a different way of doing it, but this works for me.
Just make sure that the thread is matching color of the ribbon yarn.
Because these ends are slippery little beggars you could tack them d own with matching yarn when you're done with the project. I wouldn't do it before because if you had to frog it would be a nightmare.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
Thanks to you both! I chose not to knit with both strands together at joins because I didn't want excess bulk to show on this smooth shiny yarn so I settled for a knot. I will follow your advice and untie, weave in, and sew with thread!
