Hello my friends! I recently received an amazing(!!!) yarn ball winder as a gift and immediately got to work making my own multicolored yarn cakes. I must say, I’m in love. While I researched for the best way to seamlessly join yarn I came across a method called the Russian Join. This seamless yarn join has worked out so well for me, I just had to share a little “how to” here.
You will need a yarn needle, preferably one with a pointy end, and scissors.
Thread your yarn.
Weave your yarn into itself, leaving a loop at the end.
Pull yarn through.
Thread your second yarn and pull it through the loop left on the first yarn.
Weave your second yarn into itself.
Pull yarn through and pull ends of both yarns tight to close loops. Cut off the ends.
That’s all there is to it. I’ve since made a few projects with yarn cakes that I have used the Russian Join on and they all came out great!
Do you have a go to seamless yarn join method? Let me know in the comments!
