How to Make a Russian JoinBy Candace – 31 Comments
Sometimes you just don’t want to use regular joining methods to add another ball of yarn to your project. That’s where the Russian Join comes in. It is practically invisible and there’s no worrying about how to work the stitches in transition from one ball to another.
Thread a yarn needle with your current color. Weave the needle through the yarn.
Pull the needle and tail through the yarn and remove the needle.
Thread the needle with your new yarn. Pass the needle and yarn through the loop in your old yarn.
Weave the needle through the new yarn just as you did with the old yarn. Pull the needle and tail through the yarn and remove the needle.
Pull both yarn tails taut, closing the loops where the ends of the yarn meet.
Clip the tails and continue crocheting.
