How do you join a new ball of yarn at the beginning of a row?

How do you add new yarn when knitting?

Lay the new yarn across the needle, so that its yarn tail sticks out at the front of the knitting. Then hold both the old and new yarn together as if they were one big yarn strand. Knit three stitches with the joined yarns. Let go of the old yarn, pick up the new yarn and continue knitting with the new yarn.

What does rejoin yarn mean in knitting?

To ‘rejoin’ yarn, you don’t really need to attach it, just leave a long enough tail to weave in later and start knitting. The first stitch may seem loose but it won’t pull out and after you’ve done more rows, that will anchor it in.

Can you change yarn in the middle of a row?

To join new yarn in the middle of a row, when about 36 inches of the old yarn remains, work several more stitches with the old yarn, working the stitches over the end of new yarn (shown in double crochet). Then change yarns in stitch as previously explained.

Can you change yarn in the middle of a row knitting?

If you run out of yarn in the middle of a row, your options are the same: Tie a temporary knot with both yarns, leaving 4- or 5-inch (10- to 13-centimeter) ends; or knit the next stitch with both strands, drop the old one, and continue knitting from the new ball.
