The Invisible Join
I am often asked how i get my crochet joins to look so perfect? The answer is a simple trick called the Invisible Join or Invisible Needle join. Have you ever showed off a blanket or other crochet project to a friend and hoped that they wouldn’t look at it too closely. Or did you cover the messy join with your hand, while they were admiring your hard work? If you learn how to do the invisible join, you will never worry about people looking too closely ever again, because your joins will be perfect!
It’s a great trick for all crocheters to learn, because it gives your finished pieces a more professional look. The trick is to use a needle to join your round, rather slip stitching with the crochet hook. It’s not complicated to master, but takes a little more time. Not much more time, i promise!
Invisible Join Tiny Tutorial
By far the easiest way for me to show you this Invisible Join method, was to create a little Tiny Tutorial, so i did! The video goes for less than a minute and will transform your crochet completely! That is time well spent! Don’t use this technique to join every round, just the last round. This is the round that will be exposed to critical eyes and therefore the most important round to finish off well. All joins for previous rounds will be covered over with the following rounds, so save this technique for outside joins.
