One way of doing a Russian Join

Russian join

Russian join

Step 1 Thread a yarn needle with one end of the joining pieces of yarn.

Step 2 Weave the needle through the yarn fibers at least three times, making sure to have a loop at the end

Step 3 Thread the needle with the joining piece of yarn then pull the needle through the loop of the first piece of yarn

Step 4 work the yarn through the yarn fibers at least three times and pull on both working yarns to close the loops tight. Trim off any excess yarn from the ends.

Use the yarn as usual. There could be a bit of a thickening where the join was created. This does not show when the project is complete too much.
