I crochet some and what I do is:
If possible join at end or beg. of a row--start the stitch with
old yarn leaving a tail of about 6 inches to weave in later and
before you finish the stitch, take new yarn and finish the stitch leaving a tail of about 6 inches to weave in later.
This is the same method I use when I have to change color.
Hope this helps and good luck.
