When working on a knitting or crochet project that uses multiple colors, trying to keep the balls of yarn from tangling can be an absolute nightmare – especially if you’re crafting on the go or using a persnickety fiber. Modular yarn holders can help save your sanity (and your yarn) by keeping each color neatly contained and separated. Designed to be used together or alone, these handy little boxes can snap together or pull apart, so you only need to carry the colors you’re actually using. You can toss them in your project bag, go on about your day, and stop worrying about finding a knotted mess when you get home!

This tutorial makes a set of three yarn holders, and can be customized to fit balls of yarn in your usual weight.
