How to Unravel Novelty Yarn Without Yourself Unraveling

There have been plenty of times where we start knitting and crocheting with a certain yarn, only to see that the pattern just doesn’t mesh well with that particular yarn.  Last night I was taking a look at one of those projects, and did not like what I saw.  So, I just decided to unravel it.  Easier said than done… Patons Lace with Sequins is not the kind of yarn you can rip out in 10 minutes, this was a job in itself. It took over two hours to get it all done, but I was happy that I stuck it out and saved all that beautiful yarn 🙂

There are two important things you will definitely need before you start ripping it out: tons of patience and a yarn needle. As you start unraveling, the yarn will either get stuck together due to the fuzz and sequins, and this is where the yarn needle comes in to play.  Use it to either gently pull the sequin or fuzz apart.  Trust me, this will be extremely frustrating, but in the end you will have saved all of the yarn, and we all know that yarn is not cheap these days, especially these types!


Once you’ve unraveled it all and rolled it back into a ball, just stick it back into the opening, and it’s ready to use again 🙂
