Making a Center Pull Yarn Ball

Blogged under crochet and knitting by Tammy on Wednesday 21 March 2012 at 10:22 am

After you have been knitting or crocheting for awhile, it does not take long before you start collecting leftover yarn pieces. Normally, I have wrapped these into balls of yarn. In fact, I do this often too when I have a skein of yarn that does not want to cooperate and pull from the middle like it should. (Don’t you hate that?) Then I saw this very cool center pull yarn ball method over that KnitFreedom.com and was amazed! No more pulling on the yarn and it rolls all over the place!

I tried the method demonstrated on the video below, and once I started getting the hang of it, I realized how simple it really is. One issue I did have, however, is that for larger yarn pieces, it can be a little challenging since my hand is only so big and you wrap the yarn around your fingers in a figure 8. But for smaller yarn pieces, this is now my “go to” method for wrapping.

    Hi Tammy,

    Thanks so much for sharing my center-pull ball video! I use this technique for every bit of leftover yarn that I want to keep track of. I’m so glad you like it!
