Modular Crochet Bobbin Holder (to help prevent tangling)

I don’t know if I’ll be able to make a bobbin holder like the one in the link above but I have seen/read of different ways to keep the yarn separates. Some range from using a basket with knitting needles (used to hold the yarn) while some are more simple with using something you have one hand, such as cardboard to wrap the yarn.

If anyone has an ideas, please do share!

 

Facebook group: coming soon

Due to request, I will be starting a OUTH CAL group on Facebook for all who want to participate in this CAL. I’ll post the link to the group closer to the date of the CAL.
