How To Avoid a Gap When Joining In The Round

 If you can't stand the gap created when joining yarn to knit in the round, and you don't want to try and cover it up when you are sewing in your ends, this technique is an easy way to avoid it.  With a couple of slipped stitches and a twist, the gap is taken care of and you can knit away!

Learn the Magic Knot Join

If you've ever run into a big knot in your yarn while working on a project, this is a perfect way to make it practically undetectable. The Magic Knot Join is a great way to join two strands of yarn together with virtually no visible ends. It could even be used to join a new skein and avoid weaving in ends!
This technique is best used with a dense stitch pattern like garter stitch or seed stitch. A more open stitch or lace won't hide the knot. It is also best used with a sturdy plied yarn. Single plies and delicate fibers aren't strong enough to hold up to the strength test and will fall apart.
