Joining Yarn Technique
There has been a lot of topics of people asking how to join yarn while working on a project and I would like to share a how to video I made showing the braided join, which is almost invisible within a project.

I also have another video showing how to change to a different color of yarn. Check other videos to view this.

Hope this helps a lot of you knitters and crocheter's out there.

This is the ONLY method I use now,,,, I used to use the Russian Join, but, had a bad experience 2 times after laundering and the join worked apart. So with this join, as long as you make the braid long enough, there is no worries of it coming apart. It is visible when you 1st start knitting but after a few rows you have to look for the braid... it just seems to disappear in the project.
