What a fantastic tutorial! I had seen other methods for dyeing self-striping yarn before, but none nearly this efficient. I'm completely new to dyeing, but this really breaks the self-striping process down into manageable steps. Thanks for posting!

I know this is really old and this is probably a dumb question, but how do you avoid getting a knotted tangled mess? I dyed up 4 skeins after warping, and they're all big twisted messed that take 3 days to unwarp into a ball. It turns out I did my ties wrong (I didn't tie the overlapping bits) would this cause the huge knot?

I think the more you tie...the better.  And when you put them back on the board try to make sure the yarn isn't all twisted so it comes off each peg nicely....if that makes any sense.

I've had one that turned into a big knotted mess...so I totally understand!
