Now this ball will need to be wrapped with yarn for knitting.

Begin to wrap the ball

You can first put a little glue on the surface of the ball so that the yarn does not slip off. It is sometimes possible to apply glue over already wound yarn. The main thing is to make the coils close enough to each other and not move.
