How to Make a Russian Join: russian-join

What is a Russian join? A Russian join is a very effective way to join 2 yarn ends without using a knot. It works well on any type of plied yarn, especially when the yarn doesn’t felt, such as for cotton, linen or superwash wool yarns. It can be used for knitting and crochet. I also like to use this method for nalbinding.

How to Russian Join Yarn

Step 1:
Thread a needle with one of the yarns you wish to join.
Work the needle back through the yarn for about an inch, forming a loop.

Step 2:
Pull the thread through, leaving a loop in the yarn end.

Step 3:
Thread the second yarn end through the loop.

Step 4:
Thread the needle with the second yarn.
Work the needle back through the second yarn end for about an inch.

Step 6:
Pull gently on both yarn ends to close the loops.

You can now trim the yarn ends leaving you with a neatly joined yarn.
