Magic Knot 1. Pull both working and joing yarns to pull the knots together. 2. Trim the excess ends of yarn as close as possible. 3. Give a good test pull to both ends of the yarn to make sure it holds. 4. Continue crocheting. The knot should be invisible in your work.* ༺✿ƬⱤღ http://www.pinterest.com/teretegui/✿༻

DIY: Dutch-Style Knit Throw

Pattern for a knit throw blanket in a cool black yarn that is actually "comprised of midnight blue, forest green, and gray tweed to add a little dimension to the black color". Would love to make this and use this yarn.

How to make a magic knot to join yarn (for a new color or if you run out) ! Just did this for my sweater right in the middle of a row and you can't even tell!

Twisted German Cast-on. Great casting on tops of knit socks, gloves, where you need a stable but stretchy edge. Easy if you already know Long-Tail Cast-on.
