How to Use the Russian Join to Connect a New Ball of Yarn

The Russian Join is one of my favorite ways to join a new yarn in a project. It does make the join area a bit thicker, but is still pretty inconspicuous in most yarns. This method creates a seamless, secure join, and does not require a knot, or weaving in any extra yarn tails.

This is one of the few instances where I prefer a straight-tipped yarn needle.  I usually use a bent-tipped steel yarn needle, but for this technique, a straight one is ideal.
