I gave this a shot the other night (on the wheel), and ended up with very lumpy weird looking yarn.

Clearly I'm doing something wrong ... :help:

I'm fine with plying together two strands from bobbins A and B onto bobbin C, for instance, but I think I'm missing something to do with the "chaining" part of Navajo plying. I don't crochet, maybe that's why I'm getting stuck - the instructions I read say "make chains like you are doing crochet" ... which is helping me not at all!

You guys are a brilliant and patient lot :angel: ... can you coach me through this? :)

good video! I know how to crochet but the time I tried navajo plying I wasn't doing that way



probably why it didn't look right and I've never done it again!!

Also if your singles aren't pretty thin the join areas will come out looking far lumpier (is that a word?) than if they were fairly thin, as in fingering weight or thinner.

I have tried Navajo plying and I don't like that little bump that you get when you bring a new loop through to spin. I annoys me. I don't believe that you can avoid it, so I don't use that technique. I tried it a couple of times and decided it wasn't for me. YMMV
