Hello Dear Readers,
“How to wind a Hank into a Center Pull Ball- Method-2”, yet another center pull ball method. As I have already mentioned the benefits of center pull ball method in previous post there is one more advantage of it which I forgot and that is this method keeps your yarn safe and tidy in storage too! So as we know enough benefits of center pull ball, lets dive into the method-2.
For this method you need a smooth, sturdy winding tool: I like to use a thicker-gauge crochet hook or long knitting needle. You could use a pen or a pencil in a pinch, they just have to be clean, sturdy and smooth.
Hank to Center Pull Ball- Method-2
Step 1: Tie a slip knot in the end of your yarn.
Step 2: Insert the needle into the knot.
Step 3: Take the knot at 2/3 distance of the needle and tighten the knot.
Step 4: Hold the knot with left hand and take other end of the yarn along the needle.
Step 5: Hold your yarn against the needle with your thumb, and wrap it around the needle several times.
Step 6: After 20-30 rounds you will feel the clump of yarn.
Step 7: Continue to wrap yarn around these first clump of yarn, criss crossing as you work from time to time as shown. This should feel just like winding a regular wrapped ball of yarn, only this ball of yarn has a winding tool poking out of it.
Step 8: Continue in this fashion until all your yarn is wrapped.
Step 9: Tuck the end into the ball under a few strands to secure it.
Your ball will look something like this.
Step 10: Gently ease the needle out of the ball.
All done! The end with the slip knot in it will now be the start of your next project, and yarn will pull from the center of the ball with ease!
