I am a total beginner and I now know how to finish a project but I am not clear on how you add join new yarn in the middle of a project. The way I am doing it looks very messy and also the two ends want to come out of the crochet stich that I am joining the two yarns at. In particular, I am having trouble when joining in a double crochet.

http://allcraftsbigsmall.weebly.com/craftin-for-pleasure.html I made the crochet mesh roll hat, I posted a pic on my blog if you'd like to see it. I really liked the pink camo!
