NOT TO KNOT

Simply Knitting - - Ask The Experts - Deb­bie

Q I’ve been told not to knot my yarn but I don’t know any other way to change yarn?

Amy Con­nor, Glas­gow

If you want a neat fab­ric, yarn should never be joined up in the mid­dle of a row, a knot will poke through or it’ll pro­duce a bump in your knit­ting and no­body wants that! In­stead join the new yarn in at the be­gin­ning of a row and sew the ends into the seam when you’re mak­ing up. Deb­bie Bliss pat­terns, books and yarns are avail­able from www.loveknit­ting.com

Never change yarn in the mid­dle of a row – keep changes for the edges where they won’t be seen!
