YARN HELP PLEASE!!!


Does anyone know how to find the end of the yarn in a skein, so when it is pulled out to begin a project it doesn't make a knotted up mess?

I have a skein of yarn that is being very stubborn. 
I can 't find the end, it is 'hiding'. 

Thank you.

  2. Thank you! Great info, but sadly after an hour of looking for
    the inside 'end', I gave up and just used the outside end even though that is harder to crochet with. I will be more careful next time choosing a skein.

  3. I have this problem before. My mom and I discussed this and decided that yarn makers do not wind the skeins in the same way they used to. Remember holding the skeins with two hands while someone else wound the yarn into a ball? Can't do that with skeins now.

    1. Oh yes! Used to do that for my mom all the time, she would use an old envelope to roll the ball on!
