What can I use for yarn bobbins?
You can use many things as yarn bobbins, such as pegs or small pieces of card. The idea is to wind yourself small skeins of yarn to use with various colour changes. You wouldn’t need yarn bobbins with a striped blanket or granny square, but you might find them helpful in graphgan designs.
What are yarn spools for?
The spool knitting devices are called knitting spools, knitting nancys, or French knitters. The technique is to wrap the yarn around the spool’s pegs. The yarn is then lifted over, thereby creating stitches. This process is repeated continually until the project is complete.
Is intarsia knitting hard?
Intarsia knitting isn’t hard, but there are some basic rules to know. Unlike fair isle knitting, the yarn is not stranded across the back of the work in intarsia knitting. Instead, you have a separate ball of yarn for each area of color.
Should I put my yarn in a ball?

After unfolding the hank, loop it around a swift (or chair back, or the hands of a willing friend) to keep it stable as you follow the steps below to wind it into a ball.
