Need help finding the center strand
I bought a skein of yarn yesterday to make a simple scarf for my nephew. Someone showed me a pattern using both ends of the yarn as two strands of yarn on very large needles, so I will try that. But, I cannot find the center strand!!! I've dug, looked, felt, pulled, all to no avail, and I'm afraid I've made a mess of the yarn in the middle. Hubby offered to help but he couldn't find it either. I finally tucked it all back in (what I managed to pull out and make a mess of).
So, what's the secret??? Do I need to re-wrap this yarn? And why in the world is that necessary anyway, even when one is not trying to find the center strand? Why not just unwind from the outside???
