Do you know how to transform a messy pile of yarn into an organized ball of yarn?
Here, I'll show you.
1). First, undo any knots or tangles that may be in the yarn. This may take some time, depending on how much yarn you have.
2). Then, grab one yarn end and, holding this end with your thumb, wrap a portion of the longer end around your index finger, about six or seven times.
3). Once you have a bit of the yarn wrapped around your finger, gently slide it off. Do not let it unravel.
4). Take the longer end of your yarn and wrap it perpendicular to the direction that the longer end of your wrapped yarn is oriented. For instance, if the end is horizontal (facing the ground or ceiling), wrap it vertically (facing the wall). Wrap it about six or seven times.
5). Now, take your yarn end and wrap it horizontally. Alternate between vertical and horizontal wrapping in order to form your ball. Wrap it diagonally to fill in any gaps, then in a variety of directions to form a complete ball.
