I am trying my hand at fair isle and have come to the end of one of my stands. How would I connect another stand (of the same color) to the previous stand? Margie:knitting:
There are a lot of join method videos on this page.
suzeeq pointed me to a Russian join which I used for a yarn change. The video shows it for switch colors but I just used it when I got to the end of my old skein and needed to change to a new skein of the same color.
Its a very strong join.
I usually just start knitting with the new color and then fix that gap at the end when I weave the ends in. You can also weave in the both ends before you even start knitting.
