Doubling Up the Yarn

Sometimes a pattern will want you to crochet the piece using 2 strands of yarn (or you might want to use this technique to make an item thicker and bigger than originally sized). Using 2 balls of yarn can lead to a tangled mess, so you might want to use the 2 ends of one skein of yarn (especially if it is a pre-wrapped skein of yarn that allows for easy access to the center).
