To Knot or Not to Knot?

In Miscellaneous on November 28, 2004 at 12:22 am

As I’m working on my current project and adding skeins of yarn, I’m wondering…should I really be knotting the yarns together? I am making sure to add yarn at the seams or sides so it doesn’t show and I’ve also read a lot online about adding skeins but I guess I am still a little unsure about whether or not the yarn will unravel if I don’t knot it. I’ve also read knots eventually make their way out and show in your garment and that other techniques are just as secure or even more secure. I am not so sure about not knotting in this garment but I think I’ll throw caution to the wind and try the other techniques on my next garment! Those who have been knitting for a long time do say it’s just as secure or even more secure to weave in the ends instead. So do you knot or not knot? That is the question!

    I used to be like you and knot everything but there comes a time this just isn’t feasible. Let me know what you think
