Hats shown are Valley Pattern 580, Last Minute Hat (Free Pattern) knit in Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky.

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.

How to Wet Splice Yarn

Learn how to wet splice two pieces of yarn together. In this video, Grace shows you how to reduce the number of ends you have to weave in when you can fuse together to ends of yarn when you have to start a new ball. This technique works best for yarns from animal fibers such as wool and alpaca.

How to Wind a Center Pull Ball by Hand

Learn how to wind a center pull ball using only your hands. In this video, Grace walks you through the steps of winding a ball of yarn so you can work with the end from the middle of the ball. This is a great technique to know how to do if you don't have a ball winder and yarn swift

Sometimes the yarn for your knitting or crochet project comes in a hank instead of a ball or skein. It is much easier to work from a center pull ball instead of a hank. Also a center pull ball won't roll away from you as a ball wound from the inside out would.
