Invisibly Changing Yarn Colors with the Russian Join

Knitting Tutorial: Invisibly change yarn colors in your knitting and crocheting with the Russian join and eliminate those pesky yarn tails
Changing yarn colors in your knitting often leads to odd gaps and more yarn tails to weave in, two things that annoy most knitters. However, if you take a little bit of time with the Russian join when you switch from one color to the next, you can eliminate both of those problems.

Before You Begin

The Russian join is not a difficult technique, but it is worth practicing before using it in a project.
