Pompom yarn driving me nuts

Posted by sami46 (My Page) on

I am crocheting some very simple scarves out of a novelty yarn called "puff ball". They are turning out great, but the yarn gets tangled in the paper wrapped skein, I have spent hours untangling it, any tricks?

RE: Pompom yarn driving me nuts

As a rule, I prefer to pull yarn from the inside of a skein, but I think in the case of pom pom yarn, it might tangle less if you take it from the outside of the skein. Rather than trying to "pull" the yarn (from the inside), it can "roll" off the skein (from the outside).
