Wrap the yarn around your fingers

video

Wrapping the yarn around your fingers will help you to control the tension. This is how I do it. Once I started using this technique, my gauge was consistent in everything I crocheted.

After 19 years of wrapping the yarn this way, I have fewer crochet related pain issues and no carpal tunnel syndrome. Yay!

I'm going to have to give that one a try, frankly, I had never really thought about how I was winding my yarn...
