Well, it’s new to me. I recently came across this video explaining the “magic knot”, which is a double knot used to join yarn. Till now, the Russian join has been my go-to technique, but I don’t like the added bulk. With the magic knot technique there are no tails left to weave in, the knot is not visible and there is no added bulk.
Maybe it’s new to others too. People on Pinterest seem to like this a lot.
I’ve been dreaming of making a scrapghan but have been scared away from the idea thinking about all those ends to weave in. Happy to have a way to make it faster and easier.
