Five Ways to Carry Yarn Up the Side of the Work

When I started to research this topic, I never expected to find so many different ways to tame those multiple strands of yarn. And I am happy I did find them because each of these ways has its pros and cons. If you can’t use a certain way in a particular situation, there is always another one, that will do a better job and will help you make your colourful creation the best it can be.

I was thinking of giving a working name to each of the ways, but it’s not that easy. So I simply assigned each of them a number. The numbers are random, and the first way is not necessarily better than the fifth one. 

Let’s take a look at them one by one.
