Make a center-pull yarn ball

If you've ever done much knitting or crocheting, you've probably found yourself left with the limp, hollow shell of a center-pull skein, or bought yarn in a hank. In both of these cases, conventional wisdom says you should ball the yarn to make it easier to use for the next project, but buying a ball wonder can be an expensive proposition. However, Karen from I Always Pick the Thimble has a trick up her sleeve, using a pill bottle to wind her own center-pull balls! Oooooh, fancy! [how to make a center-pull yarn ball]

Project estimate:

  • Yarn, on hand
  • Pill bottle, on hand

Total: Free!

    Thank you so much! I always wondered how my grandma made her yarn balls. Now I have a way to do it myself. Sweet! :-)
