    I like doing the Russian Join! I just haven't really gotten the knack of joining two colors on a new row, without being off a bit. But practice does make perfect tho! Thanks for the reminder
    I think it is a must learned technique to be added!

    I tried watching the video posted by buggainok but my computer keeps locking up... My son insists it's because I need to use Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. :/ I'm definitely not a "techie." I'll try to find it on youtube.com. I see all these pretty colorful items people make, sometimes each row is a different color and I love that look. But I shudder when I think about all those ENDS I'd have to "weave in" not to mention the mess it would be after a washing. I've got to find a better way.

    Yes, go to Youtube and type - changing color in yarn crochet. The video is by mikeyssmail. He is a really cute, enthusiastic guy and he has lots of videos there.

    I've watched that guy's youtube crochet videos before. He really knows what he's doing and he explains everything so clearly! Anytime I can't figure out a stitch, or how to do it, I check out his videos. He has crochet videos for everything!

    Yes, he is great. Back to the original topic, I have tried the Russian join method, and it works nicely, but I don't like having to fiddle with yarn needles and thread them. The method in the video is much simpler to me, and you end up with essentially the same result: your colors are joined, and you don't have any ends to weave in.

    buggainok - I'm with you on doing it SIMPLY!! My mom taught me how to crochet when I was a little girl.... and she taught me the "weave in the ends" method. I don't like it, not at, those ends always work through and I have to snip snip them off, frustrating. I've been looking for a very simple way to join a new color and/or skein without having to weave the ends through. I'm open to any suggestions others might have. I want to know an easy, simple way, without having to use needles, etc....

    Thanks y'all

    this is actually very interesting ..I am definitely going to try this. I am among those who hates ends too..I like to add many colors sometimes but don't because of changing them.

    Thanks Pixieglitter, I appreciate that tip, I also dislike weaving ends, always afraid they will come back out.

    Look at the double knot join. I use it a lot if I can hide the small knot.
