Why does my yarn separate when I crochet?
If you’re adding twist, your stitches are firm and more likely to deflect your needle correctly through the stitch. If you’re removing twist, especially from a yarn that was loosely twisted in the first place, the fibers of those stitches will separate and split easily as you work them.
How do you keep yarn from unraveling when crocheting?
How do I keep yarn from unraveling when I use it for fringe?
- apply fabric glue, a product found in fabric stores, to the ends of each fringe.
- knot the end of each fringe.
- knit or crochet a loop-like fringe (e.g. single loop fringe)
What does yarn splitting mean?
No matter how you describe it: yarn getting fuzzy, splitting, unraveling, or just plain coming apart, it’s a problem. When yarn splits, it makes crocheting more difficult and loosens the fiber, which results in a crochet piece that doesn’t look professional.
