A Crochet Hook
When you run out of yarn and need to add another ball to your project, stop when you have about 6″ left of your current ball. Stop your last stitch with two loops left on your hook before completing the stitch. Then place a loop of the new ball tail on the hook and draw through the last twp loops to finish the stitch. Then continue in pattern as normal.
