Crochet Know How: The Russian Join with Acrylic Yarn


www.HodgePodgeCrochet.wordpress.com The Russian Join

Lots of new crocheters eventually bump up against the problem of how to deal with a yarn knot. Either they find one (or several) in the center of a brand new skein of yarn or they run out of yarn before they run out of project!

The Russian join might seem scary but I promise, with practice and patience it will become one of your most useful tools in your crochet belt! Use it on all of your projects because not only is it more secure than a square knot (ever have a project unravel on you because of a knot that’s worked itself loose?!?), it’s also neater and pretty much invisible when done correctly!

    Hey there! I’ve seen the Russian join before and somewhat knew how it was made. Thanks for your video! I finally understand it now! Seems a little time consuming but would be well worth it when making garments. Thanks!

      I’m so glad you liked it and learned a new technique! It can go much faster with a sharper and longer needle but most crocheters I know only have these type of needles lying around so I thought I’d highlight the fact that they can be used successfully! Crocheting over knots is never a good idea, especially when you are making something large (like a garment) that you’ve put a lot of love and time in to!
