Help with Leo the Lion hat

I am knitting this hat http://www.midnightknitter.com/knitpixiepatterns/uploads/leo_lion_hat.htm
Can you make a suggestion on how to join my new color of yarn? I was thinking the duplicate stitch, but do I want to keep joining a new color of yarn? That will leave a lot to weave in, right?

if you are knitting with wool you could try the felted join.

I considered that but it has alpaca in it too. I wasn’t sure if it would join good. Thoughts?

So, I did a search…:wink: here is what I found for those who are interested…

Guess I need to be careful when washing!
