How To Join Yarn With A Magic Knot, Tutorial + Video

The magic join or magic knot is a super easy and quick way to join a new yarn without all of the bulk and hassle of weaving in ends.  Just 4 fast steps and you'll have a strand that smoothly goes from one strand to the other with just a tiny little knot!

All you need is your two yarn strands and a pair of scissors!  Also check out my video tutorial to follow along as you learn:

Begin with two strands of yarn side by side, one going in one direction, one going in the other.

Tie each strand end to the other as shown above.

Gently pull both ends so that the ties slide toward each other and meet.

Trim both tails and you're done...easy as can be!

  1. Thank you for this tip. I have found it challenging to put two strands together. I originally came to this page because of your tutorial on the Nostalgic Granny Stocking via YouTube. However, I can't find the full written project you said was here. Will you kindly help me please? I'm teaching myself new stiches while I'm healing from surgery. I find it helpful to see the pattern as well as watch it so I can learn how to read patterns. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
