How to join new yarn with a double knot

There are many ways to join a new ball of yarn when you run out of yarn. In this DROPS video we show how to make a more or less invisible join by making a double knot. We use two different colors to make it easier to follow.

With the new yarn go under the working yarn, go over both strands and through the loop and tighten. Then repeat by taking the working yarn under the new yarn, over both strands, through loop and tighten. Then pull each yarn to tighten the double knot in the center, pull tight to secure. Cut both tails as close as possible. Keep working on your project.
