Sue L. heard this technique for joining yarns — called Russian Join — described in words. But because sometimes pictures are more descriptive, she found these instructions with pictures. It looks like a site mostly for machine knitters, but the technique works equally well for hand knitters. The Russian Join is especially useful for yarns where spit splicing will not work; that is, for yarns that do not felt.
