The Magic Knot (also called the magic join) 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! This works great if you need to simply join on a new ball of yarn to your project or if you are at a spot where you want to switch colors.
All you need to get started is your two yarn strands and a pair of scissors!

Begin with two strands of yarn side by side, one going in one direction to the right, and one going in the other direction to the right.
Next, tie each strand end to the other as shown above. I like to tie mine with a couple of inches in between.
Gently and slowly pull both ends so that the ties slide toward each other and meet.
Trim both tails (careful not to trim the knot!) and you’ve done the magic knot…easy as can be!
