Yesterday, I shared A Scarf That’s Easy as 1-5-3, and it used 5 skeins/balls of yarn at one time. As you can imagine, keeping one skein/ball of yarn under control while crocheting can sometimes be challenging, but FIVE?
I started off sitting on the couch and had all 5 skeins around my lap. Before long, one dropped onto the floor. And I left it there because I feared that if I tried to get up to get it, I’d get the other four all tangled up. Before too long, 4 were on the floor (occasionally rolling away from me) and only one was left in my lap and it was time to do something about it.
So all 5 skeins went into a paper bag and were finally contained!
As I pulled on the yarn, each one cleanly unwound itself without getting tangled up or rolling away. And this also gave me a way to easily keep the ends together for the next project, by loosely tying all 5 ends together to the handle.
Do you have any other tips for working with multiple skeins/balls of yarn that I should try?
