      Good question! If I make a center pull ball, I pull from the inside. But, some times with some methods, the yarn winds more and then torques. Then I either rewind the ball from the inside out or knit from the outside. Everyone’s experience is different and there is probably a spinning and plying reason that happens, along with the method of holding the yarn. Just do what works for you!
