How do I change yarn when knitting?

Can you change yarn in the middle of a row knitting?

If you run out of yarn in the middle of a row, your options are the same: Tie a temporary knot with both yarns, leaving 4- or 5-inch (10- to 13-centimeter) ends; or knit the next stitch with both strands, drop the old one, and continue knitting from the new ball.

How do you end one ball of yarn and start another?

Starting a New Ball at the Edge

  1. Keep an eye on the yarn ball you’re working with and, when you near the end of it, stop at the end of the row you’re working.
  2. Switch to the yarn from the new ball when you start working the next row.
