Always do this at the beginning of a row; never try to make a knot in the middle of work. If you are not sure whether you have enough yarn to finish the row, spread it out and measure it. If it is four times longer than the row, you have enough, leave at the of the old yarn about 10cm long. Insert the right hand needle into the first stitch in the left hand needle, loop the new yarn around it as for a knit stitch and, holding both ends of yarn, pull the right hand needle through to make the first stitch. Continue knitting, and pull the ends of the yarn gently to tighten stitches at the edge. The loose ends are darned in later, but may be loosely knotted, while working to prevent them slipping through the first stitch.
