To Knot or Not!

I am very curious if  knitters and crocheters out there tie a knot when they come to the end of a skein and add a new skein on their projects .  Many books and instructors say to not knot, and weave in ends when done.  I rarely tie knots, but then I started thinking…….. why not!  No one else can see it, so why not!!!   You must still weave in the ends on the wrong side of course.

So if you have a preference or an explanation as to why not to knot, then I would love to hear from you.  Really!

Have a great holiday weekend, Happy knitting : )




  1. I do knot slippery yarns like perle cotton and bamboo. I do not knot wools.

    I think the idea behind not knotting is to keep the object stretchy. There might not be as much give where the knot was. (Of course it would have to be a really big knot for that to really happen!)

    • That is a good idea, to knot slippery yarns, Thanks!
