How do I successfully attach this hand I made to my forearm, without creating extra geometry. I just can not seem to connect them properly, and when I subdivide the surface or knife bisected the lines to create extra vertex points, it messed up my faces on the rest of my forearm and wrist area. this is the area of the hand I am attempting to attach
