I've experienced the same thing with some hanks . . . and, of course, I usually end up selecting the wrong end to start the ball and end up with a mess  Smiley

They both appear to be on the inside because they tie them together.  Then the hank gets tied and wraps get shifted, and I've often seen both ends on the inside.  Just means you have to flip your hank out.

Find me on Ravelry!

I really have nothing to add except that "flip your hank out" sounds like a rude suggestion.

"Hey pal, flip your hank out!" "Oh YEAH? Well, same to you!"

I'm not even sure flipping it out would work, rude suggestion or not. If both ends were on the inside and I flipped it inside out then both ends would be on the outside...it would probably still tangle, knowing my luck, lol.

When you spread out the circle of yarn, you have to look for both ends and very carefully pull them a little to see which way they go. I just use the arm of the sofa and start winding, sometimes flipping the hank a bit if I have to. You just have to do this slowly so it doesn't get tangled.

Well...I reluctantly purchased another hank of yarn for a pair of socks I was trying to finish, I did flip it out this time, hung it up on the corner of a chair and wound it into a ball. Thanks Sassy Smiley
