This is one of my favorite tips for joining yarn together. I always had knots or lumps until this method.
Lion Brand Yarn shows us how to Russian Join Yarn which is an excellent technique when attaching a new skein or changing colors of yarn. The best thing is that it creates a secure join, so you can keep crocheting or knitting without having any yarn ends! The Lion Brand Web site shows you how to complete the Russian join in 7 easy steps. The site shows how to join two different colors but this can easily be done with the same color yarn.
Keep in mind that this will only work on feltable fibers like non-superwash wool, alpaca, mohair, and so on.
