To use yarn swift:
- Secure swift to table top or counter up to 1-1/2" thick with bottom clamp. Be sure there is enough clearance around the swift for the umbrella to fully open and spin freely.
- Untwist your yarn. It should come in a nicely twisted figure 8 hank, and when it is untwisted, it will look like a big loop of yarn. Leave the ties in place for now, as they will keep your loose hank from tangling.
- Drape the open hank over the closed swift and pull it lightly to hold it at the center of the ribs.
- Open the swift like an umbrella, pushing the runner up the center shaft until your loose yarn hank is held firmly around the swift.
- Holding the runner in place, slide the center clamp up and tighten it under the runner, securing the swift in the open position.
- Make sure your yarn is not twisted anywhere around the swift, and cut the ties around the hank.
- Find the end of the yarn and pull, and the swift should spin freely. Wind with a ball winder or by hand!
