Has anyone heard of the "Weaver's Knot?" If you have, how successful is it in knitting?
Here is the You tube link for it. It sure does look interesting!

I've seen it before but I have never used it. I would like to know too.

I think it's a variation of the Magic Knot.

I was a weaver in another life and also used a weavers knot ,and I still use it to join my yarn and after many many years of knitting I have never had one come undone yet ,I tie mine a bit different but the end result is the same

It is and it isn't. It looks easier to me, based on the video. According to past posts on the magic knot, people have had it (magic knot) come apart on them...especially after washing with special soaps.
I wonder if this would be an improved version.

I use the weaver's knot but make mine a little differently starting with a slip stitch and putting the new yarn in before pullng the slip knot tight. I still weave the tails in because when I cut them close to the knot they came un-done. :-(

You hear a 'popping' sound when it is done correctly.

The one I use mostly is the Russian join, but the magic knot is just as good.

I have been using 'magic knot' lately- but like the look of this one- I don't take the risk of trimming- preferring to darn in the ends.
