How To Wind Yarn with a Swift and Winder

How To Wind Yarn with a Swift and Winder
How To Wind Yarn with a Swift and Winder

"In the last few years, the availability of independent yarns has exploded. We all have more access to hand dyed yarns, hand spun yarns, and yarns imported in small batches — through online shops, at events, and in our local community — than ever before. Have you been worried about buying yarn from an indie company because it’s in a hank or skein? (Or, more likely, has the yarn sat in your stash, unused, because you don’t know how to wind it?) I’m going to show you how to use a yarn swift and a yarn winder to transform that hank of yarn into a usable “yarn cake.”"

This designer pattern from our friends at I Like Crochet Magazine is available for a limited time! Subscribers to the magazine receive 6 bi-monthly issues stuffed with exclusive patterns, trendy articles, and expert tips and techniques. This premium crochet community is 100% advertisement free.

Ive never used a winder beforeisnt that what husbands are for? I usually just pull the yarn from inside the skein and deal with the yarn barfs as they occur. However, when I get near the ends of the skeins, they are difficult to deal with so I usually wind up rolling them into a ball. I can see the advantages of the yarn cake over the ball. I may treat myself to a winder at the very least. Husband still works just fine as a swift.
