Ack! Yarn Snapped.
I was working on the hat and just as I inserted the needle to do a purl stitch the yarn broke right in the loop of the stitch. Ack!

I took both ends of the yarn and tied them together in a tight knot and then on the next purl I did an increase to replace the broken stitch and maintain the ribbing pattern. It seems to have worked.

Did I do right or is there a better way to deal with something like that?

A knot will definitely hold it, but I'm confused about the increase. Did you drop the stitch? If so, isn't it going to drop the rest of the way down?

The way I tied it off it should stay until I get back around to it again and I intend to purl the knotted loop together with the good one to ensure it doesn't drop. I knotted it in such a way as the knot won't show on the right side of the work if I do it that way.

I'm improvising so am not sure I'm doing it right.

It sounds correct to me, but I'm not the one knitting it, so I couldn't tell you.

I don't really think there's a "wrong" way to do it. If it holds, and you like the way it turns out, then it was the right way! You're a very capable knitter (we've all seen your Irish Hiking Scarf I think ), so I'm sure it will be great.

That's how I'd do it.... Whatever will keep the ends together and on the inside where you can't see it.

Well, right or wrong it seems to have worked. I'm a couple of rounds up from it now and it seems ok.
