- Tangling yarn can cause the yarn to clump up, run double or break.
- If your yarn is tangling, the cones are sitting too close to each other.
- How far apart the cones should be can rely on the type of yarn, knitting speed, and cone size.
- Always make sure there is at least a couple of centimetres, or an inch, between the cones.
- When knitting for the first time, keep an eye on your yarns until you trust that they won’t tangle.
- If a yarn unwinds expansively and tangles even though the distance between the cones is reasonable, a plastic bag could save the day.
- It keeps the yarn closer to the cone and creates a barrier to other yarns
- Put the cone including the cone holder in a plastic bag before placing them on the metal pin.
