How to Wind a Hank of Yarn

Wrap the yarn in a figure eight around the thumb and little finger of your hand several times to make a butterfly shape.

Make about 20 passes if you’re winding a medium-weight yarn; make more passes for a finer yarn or fewer for a thick yarn. Stay loose: Be sure not to stretch the yarn as you wind.
