Try colour­ful magic knots on

Simply Crochet - - CONTENTS -

For any cro­cheter with a stash of yummy yarn, there’s al­ways a prob­lem: what to do with all those lit­tle odds and ends of yarn, of­ten left over from old projects.

Well, we have the per­fect idea for us­ing up those ran­dom lit­tle balls and cre­at­ing some unique, colour­ful projects: tie them to­gether! The eas­i­est way to do this is with a ‘magic knot’, and in this workshop we’ll show you how to do it.

CLEVER JOIN

The magic knot is a way to join to­gether two pieces of yarn with a su­per-strong knot that won’t come un­done and that doesn’t leave any ends to weave in – re­sult! You can use this knot to join to­gether as many ran­dom lit­tle balls as you like, in what­ever colour theme or com­bi­na­tion you like, to cre­ate your own brand-new ball of yarn that looks sim­i­lar to a shop-bought var­ie­gated yarn and will hook up into a unique and ex­cit­ingly un­pre­dictable colour ef­fect.

HANDY TECH­NIQUE

The magic knot is a re­ally handy and easy tech­nique that’s worth learn­ing, even if you only use it to join a new ball of the same yarn on a big­ger project. We’ll ex­plain just what you need to do and how to do it, so you can cre­ate your own colour­ful projects like this rain­bow cowl (see page 83 for the pat­tern).
