I am very very new to knitting and to let myself in gently I am knitting a scarf. I have been doing fine up til now, managed the cast on and everything all by myself, but now I have run into trouble. I have finished the first ball of yarn and need to add another. I tried just knotting the two ends together but they came apart really quickly (I used a reef knot) and I had to pick apart about three rows.
So, is this a silly question? Did I just not tie it tight enough? Is there a special technique?
Thanks for your help
