When You Don’t Want to Spit on Your Hands

try a Russian join –

When do I use a Russian Join?  When I knit lace, always.  I learned the hard way when a weak split splice worked itself loose in a lace shawl.  It was NOT a pretty picture.

By the way, KnitPurlHunter has excellent tutorial videos and great knit-a-longs to learn new techniques.  I highly recommend her!

  1. Oh thank you! I have asked different people about joins on lace projects, and have got such varied answers. I am going to try this one on my next project. 🙂

    • Please do try it. When you stretch lace out to be blocked those joins need to be tight or they might break.
