Snags and splits in your yarn are so frustrating, but there are ways to help fix them. If the snag occurs near to where you're working on your crochet, then just unravel some stitches to the snag and then lightly roll the yarn back and forth in between your palms to retwist it, then resume your crocheting. If the snag occurs too far into a finished piece of work, then gently lift and tug the stitch with your nail and try to lightly twist it between your index finger and thumb, then gently tug around the stitch to reshape. If the snag is so bad that these techniques don't work, then see if you can pull the extra yarn into the back of the item and secure with a separate piece of yarn and then weave in the extra tails of yarn.
