How to use an EZ BOB Knitting Bobbin

Bobbins are used in intarsia knitting and occasionally in fair isle. Any time you will be working with multiple yarns, they are helpful because they keep the yarn from getting tangled.

  • Pop up the edge of the bobbin.
  • Wind yarn around the bobbin like thread on a sewing machine bobbin.
  • Be consistent in the winding, don't go back and forth across the bobbin, so that when you pull the yarn it comes off smoothly.
  • Flip the edge of the bobbin back down.

Bobbins can hang off the knitted work without getting tangled. Just pull yarn off as needed.
