How do you find the inside strand of yarn?
It is typically found in one of two places: underneath the yarn label or tucked inside one of the skein openings. For the yarn end in the middle of the skein (referred to as “center pull”), stick your thumbs and index fingers inside the cavity of the skein and try to feel for a clump of yarn, right in the middle.
Do you pull yarn from the middle?
All skeins have an outside end that allows you to begin work by unrolling the yarn from the outside. You can begin knitting or crocheting from the outside, wind it into a ball by hand, or use a wool winder to make a pull skein. However, many people prefer to pull from the center as it can keep the ball neater.
Can you knit straight from a skein?
Frankly, if you can wind a ball of yarn by hand without a swift or a ball winder, you can knit directly from a skein. The only difference between the two is winding the skein up between knitting sessions.
What size yarn bowl is best?
The best size yarn bowl is 6½ – 8 inches wide and 3½ – 4½ inches tall. This will fit most yarn balls and the sides are high enough so it doesn’t jump out as you crochet. Most medium size yarn bowls are approximately 5-6” in diameter and 3” high.
