How to Find The Ends of Yarn?

1. Firstly, with the new yarn, you will want to identify whether it's a ball or a skein. They can be wound differently, but you can typically use the same methods on either.
2. When dealing with a skein, you will want to find the outside end first. It's usually tucked in, or behind the label. 
3. The other end is usually rolled up in the middle of the skein. Insert your thumb and index finger into the center of the skein.
4. Feel for the center, once found pull the skein out.
5. You will pull out extra yarn, but that's okay.
6. Take the center skein and wrap it around the skein.
7. You have now found both ends of a skein of yarn.
