How to wind a skein of yarn into a ball

The first thing you’ll need to do when you start crocheting with your Homelea Lass crochet kit is turn your skein of soft merino wool yarn into a ball.


Watch the video below to learn how to do this:


Step by step instructions:

  • open the skein
  • lie the skein flat and in a circle in front of you
  • untie or cut the loops that are holding the yarn together
  • find the end
  • carefully unwind some of the yarn
  • wrap the end around your fingers a couple of times
  • slip the yarn off your fingers, fold it in two and then wind the yarn around this to start creating a ball
  • keep carefully unwinding the skein and wrapping it around the ball until you’re finished.

With love, Lynda.
