I see many new crocheters looking for the best ways on joining yarns. Well, there are plenty of great video tutorials with various methods teaching us how to join two yarn ends, such as the Russian Join, or the Magic knot, or even the Slit Splice just to name a few.
Yes, they do produce a seamless finish and I don’t disagree one bit.
But for me, as you may already know, I like doing things fast and easy. My way is slightly unconventional, but hey do we really have to follow the rules? Wait what rules? LOL 😉
Option 1 – Crochet Along
Pause a few inches just before the yarn ends. On the next stitch…
draw up a new set of yarn
and pull it through the last stitch (this method would not work if you are in the middle of chains)
Next, continue to stitch as usual and over the remaining tail. Voila, you have just extended your yarn.

Option 2 – Knot It
A few inches just before the yarn ends, pick up a new set of yarn and take both ends…
Work a one loop knot
Pull both ends tight to secure and cut off the access tail.
Crochet as usual. The knot will stay hidden in between stitches. (Don’t judge me 🙈)
This option is the fastest and my most preferred choice of all time. And no one would even have to know 😎
